The Navigation Toolbar is used to flip through the pages in your project. Use the drop-down list to select a specific page, use the black arrow keys to go to the next or previous page or, use the green Back/Forward buttons, to go to the last paged viewed.

By default, this toolbar is docked directly below the program Tabs, toward the left-side of the application.

The Pages drop-down indicates what page is currently being viewed and allows you to select a specific page quickly from a list of all pages in the current Bid.

In Tools > Options you can set options to show or hide the Page Number and Sheet Number. The Sheet Name always displays.

The Back and Forward arrows function like standard browser going back and forth through the previous views (what you last saw in the Image window).

More about the Page Navigator drop-down

OST Page Navigator drop-down

  1. Pages displayed with a blue page icon in the Page Selector drop down list indicate that there is takeoff on that page. (Takeoff does not include Annotations - only measurements drawn with a Condition count as "takeoff")
  2. Pages with a green check mark next to their icon indicate they've been marked "Mark Takeoff Complete". 
  3. You can resize the drop-down so you can see the entire Sheet No. and Name, click the control at the bottom-right of the drop down and drag it to the desired size.

When the Page Navigation drop down is open, you can quickly scan through the list using the scroll wheel on your mouse.

Hiding Page (Index) No. and Sheet No.

The Sheet Name always displays, however you can show or hide the Page (Index) and Sheet Numbers however you like. 

In Tools > Options, uncheck "Display page index with sheet name" or "Display sheet number with sheet name". 

OST Options to show-hide Page and Sheet Numbers

In our example, we uncheck both, and now the Page Navigator drop-down shows just the Sheet Name.
