Our services staff find there are some common questions that everyone would benefit from knowing.

FAQ 1 - How do you email drawings to show the design to the customer?

The easiest ways is to create a PDF file of the drawings. To do this you will need PDF creator. To download the application required to do this from the internet, search for ‘PDF Creator’.

Choose one of the free downloads.

Once you have downloaded a PDF creator to your computer, you will notice when you have a document open and you go to File –Print, you now have a new option as your PDF Creator.

Now try it in your Planit software. Have a drawing on screen and go to File – Print and choose your PDF creator. You will notice after a couple of seconds the drawing will open in your PDF Creator and you now have the option to save the file ready for emailing.

Make sure you take note of where you are saving your file to, and go ahead and open a new email and add the saved PDF file of your drawings as an attachment.


FAQ 2 - In CabinetVision after setting up a new material in the Material Catalogue, then creating a Material Schedule…why cant I see the new Material to select for a Door style?

You need to make sure the material selected for the door style has been previously setup in the door catalogue.

To do this, go to the CabinetVision splash screen and click on Catalogues –Door.

Select the Door Style and then go to the Material TAB for the Door.
Ensure the box is ticked next to each Material Schedule you want to use with this Door Style, especially any new materials that you have created recently.

Go back into the job, and check to make sure you can now see your material when editing the door style.
