    Is there a way to enter desired spacing between panel and stile/rail to allow for something like spaceballs, other than inserting a negative panel length and width oversizing?

    Hi There,

    Unfortunately, no, that’s the only method we would have right now. It’s never been a focus, really, because the only situation you need something like that is when you’re using solid wood panels. In that case, you really have to make the decision on actual size at the time you’re building based on the time of year to compensate for seasonal wood movement, so it doesn’t really need to be on the cutlist with a gap put in there. In the winter, you have to leave more room than in the summer. For something like that, I generally don’t even care what the cutlist says; I always recalculate at the time I’m building. That’s why we’ve never implemented a parameter like you’re talking about. That said, you can always use the negative undersizing if you want to have it drawn that way.

    Does that make sense?

    Thanks,
    Greg
