Thanks for info. Yes i often have multiple depths of shelves and uprights in one unit so creating multiple new upright elements will be a pain.
I will add doors first before designing internals and drawers. Not perfect either, as what you are looking at becomes difficult to establish and what the dimensions are referenced from is also tricky. I would really benefit from a fixed, lockable reference point (frontage) so that the internal components didn’t change with the addition of doors/ external components.

The best way is to add the front doors,
Because when your cabinet does not have a door, the uprights are connected to the frontage of the cabinet (open frontage).
When you add doors, the uprights are connected to the facade components (doors)
Another solution you can create new upright element with recess
and from division sub-methods set recess of this specific part from cabinet frontage and facade components
Hope that helpful, Alex

I am also finding difficulty with drawers behind doors. When I apply doors to the cabinet, the drawers, vertical divisions and shelves jump forward and do not maintain their specified recesses.
I note the in polyboard video “drawers behind doors” the vertical divisions also jump forward when doors are applied. Not noticed by the video maker!
How do you stop this happening?
I have also tried nil double backs as a reference for recessed shelves. This does work to stop panels and shelves moving when a door is applied. Unfortunately this leaves me with zones that i can’t access for applying drawers. Changing the viewing angle does not let me select these zones as i seem to always select the double back.
Any help would be appreciated?
