It’s easy to make mistakes when you fly through your on-screen takeoffs. With Buildxact you can fix your last measurement quickly and move onto more important things.
From plaster to roofing, nail your takeoff
Once you’ve scaled your plans it’s time to get down to business. Whether it’s measuring plaster, brickwork or roofing, it’s important you are precise with the takeoff tool so Buildxact can accurately measure and estimate your job’s costs.
How to use the escape button to delete your last measurement
It’s easy to make a mistake with the drawing tool, but it’s even easier to fix it. Maybe you‘ve overshot the wall or under measured the roof space while making your last measurement. Rather than using the ‘undo’ button to delete the entire drawing or the trashcan icon to delete all drawings, simply press your keyboard’s ‘escape’ key to undo your last measurement.
Bonus tip – how to best scale your plans before doing a takeoff
