New Features and Changes

  • OST is now compatible with VTablet Interface and GTCO Tabletworks 10 software.
  • When using an Excel spreadsheet in conjunction with OST users are now able to make changes in the spreadsheet (i.e. add / delete rows or columns) and still have OST link to the mapped cell. This link allows OST to follow the quantity in the mapped cell to the new location in the spreadsheet.
  • In the event that On-Screen Takeoff stops responding, a dialog box will now indicate that “A General Exception Error has occurred.” The error that caused the problem can be reported to On Center Software for use in improving future versions of the program. A dialog box will be displayed and include a button to send a log file to On Center Software. This will create an email with a small text file attached that will give On Center Software specific information about the problem and assist with troubleshooting and developing a solution.
