  • A new Auto Naming workflow. With this new update when the Auto Name button is selected on the Cover Sheet, the auto-naming process begins, but continues in the background. You are able to work in other bids while Auto Naming processes the files for the selected bid. You can monitor progress via the icon next to the Project Name and the status bar.
    • When Auto Naming results are returned, the Cover Sheet is updated automatically. Instead of a pop-up showing you the Auto Naming Results. To make changes, simply update the grid in the Cover Sheet
    • See Related Articles for details on using Auto Naming.


    Improvements to the MyOnCenter Tab contents.

    Known Issues

      • As part of the new Auto Naming workflow, we have temporarily disabled the Auto Naming Results dialog box, this will be reintroduced as the Plan Details Editor in the next update to On-Screen Takeoff with improved functionality. 
      • The MyOnCenter Tab is not compatible with Windows 8.1 and will generate an error. As Windows 8.1 is no longer supported by On Center Software, this will not be fixed. Windows 8.1 users may view the MyOnCenter Tab contents here: https://www.oncenter.com/getting-started-home . Be sure to review the System Requirements in Related Articles.
      • Sometimes, after duplicating a Condition, if the name is still in edit mode and you draw takeoff, the cursor will not follow your movements. Workaround: save changes to Condition name before drawing takeoff
