AC 25 Casework - Kitchen Cabinet behavor

I will not loose sleep about this, but I wonder why?
1. The Basic Block 25 library part > Kitchen cabinet settings > Representation, trying to Hide the Counter edges show  the Hidden contour line of the Object, it does not displayed, blank, without the edge line 

2. The Basic Block 25 library part > Kitchen cabinet settings > Knobs, does not let me select Knobs for drawers and Linear handles for the cabinet doors (Segments 1 and 2) 

Just my typical AC weekend work annoyance !

These both seem like bugs to me, but the first one is more complicated.

 

Second one first.  In the USA library (in case the cabinets differ by locale) - I have the same experience.  The Knob panel clearly lets you select different knobs for each segment... yet applies the last selection to all knobs in the object - not just the Base Cabinet Block 25.

 

Under the Segment Details panel, there is a checkbox (upper left) for "Uniform Functions" - so that if any segment is changed to a drawer, or door, for example, all segments are.  So... unchecked that as it was the only 'uniform' paramter that I found ... but I could still not select different knobs for different segments of the cabinet (eg, drawers vs doors).

 

Either we are both blind, or this is a bug.

 

The edge thing is frustrating compared to how easy it was in prior releases to omit edge lines and merge cabinets side by side.

 

The counter edges can be hidden as before... but as you've seen, Graphisoft in their wisdom has decided to display the carcass edges that lie underneath the countertop.  You can verify that countertop edges work as before by making the countertop overhang the base on the left and right and then using those same checkboxes and you'll see the countertop lines are distinct from the base lines.

 

Graphisoft's answer to the inability to hide the carcass /base lines is pretty much "as designed".  The suggestion by the always helpful Minh Nguyen here:

https://community.graphisoft.com/t5/Design-forum/AC25-Cabinet-Objects/m-p/283137

 

is at best an unsatisfactory workaround.  Changing the cabinet and carcass linetypes to dotted does make the base go away... to be replaced with some random dots... which would export if sharing this with someone, leaving them scratching their head.   As far as I know, that's the only workaround at present?
