The Image Tab is where you spend most of his or her time when using On-Screen Takeoff. The Image Tab is where you will view plans, create Conditions, and draw takeoff. You can print plans and takeoff from the Image Tab.

There are several key areas to the Image Tab: the Toolbars, the Image Window, Pan , Conditions, and Layers Windows, and the Status Bar. We cover each in detail in the articles that follow. Knowing how to use the Image Tab is crucial because this Tab is the crux of the entire application. 

The Pan, Conditions, and Layer Windows are dockbars and can be undocked from the main application Window and placed on another monitor or repositioned. To grab a dockbar, click on the double-lines at the top of the dockbar, hold down the left mouse button and drag-n-drop it to the appropriate location.

Many estimators drag the Conditions, Layers, and Pan Windows as well as the dockable toolbars to a 2nd monitor to maximize the amount of space available for the Image Window.
