Hi Vman,

To set up a rabbet you have to set the link "Type" to a groove .

Have a look at this video:

https://wooddesigner.org/membe.....ode/links/

To use dowels or / and biscuits you have to set up a "fitting link". this is considered adding hardware to the "link".

You can change the "type" of link and add dowels biscuits or cams etc using the "fittings".

The video on side plinths is here:

hope this is all helpful

all the best

Hi, sorry a couple of basic newbie questions.

1. How to I set the joint type? I.e. in some places I want to use rabbet joints in others I want to use dowels or biscuits. I'm sure there's a video on this but I can't find it!
2. When I add a plinth I can only add front and back but I actually need front and right-side. The left and right options are both disabled. Why is that?

Thanks.
