Reusing existing shapes in a new item

Follow

In Cubit you are able to reuse a previously drawn shape in a new item. Saving you time from re-measuring.

You can Drag and Drop or Copy and Paste the shape you have previously drawn into a new Estimate Item where you wish to use the same shape.

Drag and Drop

1. In the Estimate pane, select the item you wish to copy the shape from.

2. On the Calculation Sheet for the item, you will see a list of shapes you have drawn for the item selected.

3. Locate and click the specific shape you wish to copy.

Note: If there is more than 1 shape, press and hold the CTRL button on your keyboard and click all other shapes you wish to be copied.

4. Click and hold down the selected shapes and drag the mouse.

Note: If you have successfully grabbed the shape/s you will notice a small grey rectangular box beneath the mouse cursor.

5. Drop the dragged shape into the Estimate item you wish to copy to.
