6. Take off from the plan ensuring that it is an enclosed shape.

Once you have done this, the quantity will be returned to the Estimate as normal and you can check the pitch in the Details panel.


To review or alter the pitch from a drawn shape, please do the following:

1. On the Estimate pane, locate and select the item you wish to edit the pitch.

2. On the item's Calculation Sheet, select the specific shape and its details should be displayed on the Details pane.

3. Click and select the value on the Pitch and press Enter on the keyboard to apply the changes. The Quantity value will change depending on the change in pitch.
