    What is a Property Sheet?

    A property is a user-defined variable (or default) that every cabinet in the library can access and the end user can modify by using Friendly pages.

    Each drawing/job will start off with its own set of properties called Drawing Properties  which will be an exact copy of the default values set in the Catalog Properties until modified. These can be overridden at cabinet level, using the Cabinet Properties.

    Typically you will start with a library loaded and the new drawing will be based on a selected library, for example CM-Cabinets.

    A property sheet is divided into Categories (or groups) under which are related Pages, for example My Setup > My Company page. 

    The property options are accessed by clicking first the Category heading (e.g. My Setup) and then clicking on the relevant page heading (e.g. My Company).

    Catalog and Drawing Properties

    CabMaster deals with cabinet settings at three levels i.e. (1) the Catalog Properties which can be overridden by (2) the Drawing Properties without changing the Catalog defaults. Both can be overridden by (3) the Cabinet Properties. For discussion of each available default option follow this link

    Access and Saving Properties

    See topic Cabinet Properties for details on how to access.

    Property sheets for cabinets or drawing objects are similar in that they are arranged in Categories > Pages but do not have OK or Cancel buttons.

    On these property sheets, CabMasterPro will immediately apply any changes you make to the selected cabinet/object, and the only way to close them is to use the Close button.
