Align Plan:

Sometimes you would see the plans are a bit off and not properly aligned above each other. In such a case, you can use the Align Option to overlap the plans correctly.

Note:  The different colours of the take-off will be displayed on Vector plan types only. In Raster plan types the take-off will be displayed in Grey colour.

  • This How-to Guide is way out of date! I'm on Cubit Build 11.
    Even the built-in User Guide bears no relationship to the Menus in Build 11.
    How long before you catch up?

  • Hi Mike,

    By itself you are correct, this article is out of date.
    There is an article on the new Job Revision function which this is used in conjunction with.
    This can be found at the link below.

    Admittedly we are behind in some areas, but are working as quickly as possible to address these issues.

    Our apologies for the confusion, trouble, or inconvenience this causes, but bear with us and we'll sort out the issues.
    By all means definitely raise anything with us that you feel needs addressing and we will happy look into these items.
