SoftList

Add Banner Command Added
SoftList now allows a logo to be added to the printed report.

Add Companion Material Added to SoftList
The Add Companion Material command has been added which automatically adds items to the SoftList Material report based on the presence of an item on the drawing. For example if you want to list a wax ring each time a toilet is drawn, to add a companion material simply edit the item on the drawing, select the SoftList tab, and Add Companion Material. Enter the name of the material being added and the cost. This is a quick and easy way to modify the way SoftList calculates the materials list.

ODBC Connections Can Be Made to Outside Data Sources that Can Be Stored Externally to SoftList in any ODBC Compliant Database via the Price Table

This allows items such as prices to be automatically kept up to date by accessing information that is stored somewhere other than SoftList.  For example, item pricing can be stored in a purchasing system or a Microsoft ® Excel spreadsheet and updated automatically, so there is no need to input pricing that exists in another ODBC data source into SoftList.

Takeoff Highlight Tool Added
In the new SoftList mode a Takeoff Item Type is available.  A Takeoff is user definable in name, color, and size.  It can be placed automatically or manually on a drawing and appears as a highlighter would on a printed page.Once the Takeoff is placed, information such as area, perimeter, and volume is reported. This tool is useful to both enhance SoftList material calculations and work as a standalone tool for quick, easy, and accurate queries.  For example, a Takeoff could be used to calculate your volume of heated space by simply tracing the perimeter of the conditioned space. Takeoffs works best on SoftPlan drawings as information such as wall heights is available but can also be used as a way for SoftList to calculate quantities for any drawing source (.DXF, .DWG, .JPG, etc.)
