Thank you Ness,

You just saved me a few hours worth of work.

I did have it set so I could see nil panels but the cabinet had a lot going into it and it kept going to another piece or to the voided space when I tried selecting it.

Thanks again.

Hi Grant,

To see “nil” panels activate the option in the View menu:

You can now see and select the nil panels :

You can also use the Properties menu and  the drop down list of parts:

Once selected just use the drop down to change the nil to “no”.

All the best,

I am having an issue with a cabinet I am making in polyboard.

I was making a cabinet with multiple sections divided by the use of upright and each ‘section’ of the cabinet had a double back to it and then had shelves added.

In one of the sections I changed the double back into a nil panel. 

However, now I want that double back to be included but can’t seem to select the item to change it back into a double back.

Is there a way to undo this or to try and find the item to select it so that I don’t have to remake the entire cabinet again in order to re-insert the double back.

Thanks in advance.
