Easel Cabinetmaker Updates:11/06/2023 - 11/17/2023

Thanks for your patience as we had a short week last week for Veteran’s Day! There will be no update next week due to Thanksgiving. We appreciate your understanding!

Once again, we released a change on the 14th to give new users access to some exciting features we’ve been working on. For users who have had access to Easel Cabinetmaker prior 11/14, don’t worry! We’re currently working on the roll out for this group of users, which involves a migration process to preserve existing projects.

If you were added to Easel Cabinetmaker before November 14 and you are interested in test driving this new workflow before it is released to all users, please reach out to our team ! We would be happy to have your participation in our ongoing user testing.
