On-Screen Takeoff

New Features

  • Windows 10 compatible – enjoy using your new software on Microsoft’s latest version of Windows®! (see System Requirements)
  • Copy and Paste Backouts – you can copy a backout you’ve already drawn and paste it into the same Area object – time saver! (See User Guide article for details)
  • Copy and Paste Zones – you can copy and paste Zones within the same Project. Great timesaver if the same zones appear on multiple pages! (See User Guide article for details)
  • Add advanced mouse controls to improve support for wheel movements – scroll, tilt, and click your mouse’s scroll wheel to pan and zoom your image. (See User Guide article for details)
  • Ink Annotation - Allows you to 'write' directly on the Image window in electronic Ink - stored as annotation. (See User Guide article for details)


  • When zooming, the focus will center on the mouse cursor’s position rather than on the center of the current view. More intuitive.
  • Add warning banner when Interactive Bid connection is broken or bid is in “Manual Mode” – lets you know that your bid information is not being automatically transferred to Quick Bid.
  • Auto Count dialog box can be resized to show more Results.
  • Alternates and Change Orders are now sorted alphabetically rather than by the date they were created (sort order matches Quick Bid)
  • Add the ability to turn off the “Q1”, “Q2”, “Q3” labels in the Image Legend.
