    First thanks for an amazing product! At the moment, the only way to add or subtract a count or measurement on the takeoff tab (once you've taken off an item in planswift) is by going into planswift and clicking on the drawing. perhaps it would be helpful to have an override feature where you can change the quantity from the actual cell in turbobid as well (as one would if they didn't have planswift).
    Thanks and good luck!!

    While that's a great idea, the only issue is that once you do a Planswift Count Add or Linear Measurement in a cell, the cell is now linked with the assembly displayed in the Summary section of Planswift. If you were to enter a new number in the cell, it would eliminate that link.

    While working on a take off using the plan swift program you have to set up the properties for the count
    that you are taking off. If you go to the next column or the next room on the take off and you are again counting the same item or assembly ( a ceiling can) you have to set up the properties again, and again for each room that you are taking off. Is there a way to set up the properties for the ceiling can just once and use the same properties for each room where you are counting the item or assembly (ceiling can). If you are doing a take off room by room this gets to be very time consuming. If you just take off an entire floor without the individual rooms set up as columns the take off is much faster but you loose the turbo bid features in the reports for showing the take off quantities for individual rooms which is a feature that I would like to be able to send to a customer. Is there a solution for this or just something I will have to live with?

    Each cell in the take-off tab is a separate link to Planswift. That's why you receive the properties window in Planswift. The only thing you're really selecting in the properties window is to either use the red diagonal mark or the highlight color when clicking on the print and marking the counted symbols. Fortunately, this step only takes a quick click or two.
