Multiple default settings

I am fairly sure that there is only a single Default (D) setting for each type of configuration, such as cabinet color. But just checking.


What I was hoping to find was some sort of (D1), (D2), etc., so that I could have, in this case, groups of cabinets using a particular set of defaults that could then easily be changed all at once without affecting other groups using different defaults. So be able, for instance, to cycle through colors on painted uppers, and separately cycle through different stain colors on base cabinets, which would not affect cabinets in other rooms using othe defaults.

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.


You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.


Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.


And, turn on signature display too.

There are no multiple defaults in Home Designer. It's been suggested and Chief added something similar to the Chief Architect products 2 versions ago.


You can group select cabinets -- all uppers in a kitchen, for example and change all at once. 


You can restrict a marquee selection to only uppers by first selection the upper cabinet tool, hold Shift and marquee select.


Base cabinets work the same. Full height cabinets need to be selected individually because using the above Shift selection method, first selecting the full height tool restricts the selection to all cabinets, not just the full height.
