How do I select a sink (or other library item) that I placed within a cabinet?


In Home Designer Suite, built-in sinks, dishwashers, and other library items cannot be selected independently once they have been placed within a cabinet. However, you can swap the existing item by selecting another item from the library and placing it in the cabinet. At this point, you will be asked if you would like to replace the existing item. 

The ability to move and modify built-in sinks, dishwashers and other library items is available in Home Designer Architectural and Pro. Select the cabinet that contains the sink or appliance, then either press the
Tab key on your keyboard or click on the Select Next Object edit button on the Edit toolbar. The item will become selected and you can move it using the Move  edit handle or adjust it using the other various edit handles.
