    Default Panel Depth - This is the default panel depth for all floor and hanging closets.

    Use Plant On Top - This option will set the closet tops on top of the vertical  panels. If this option is turned off the top will be placed between the vertical panels

    Use 32mm System - Turning this option on will change the interface for the closet prompts to be selected from a drop down list. All of the panel heights will be in 32mm increments. This will also change the splitter interface to force the user to select opening heights that also fall into 32mm increments.

    The combine parts option will allow you combine multiple parts together. This is typically only used on tops when you have the Use Plant On Top Selected. By default the top for each section is a separate part, but it is common to cut these as one part. You only need to use this command if you are trying to generate cutlists for your designs. First select the parts you want to combine together then click the Combine Parts Command.

    Materials Options
