Cubit Estimating 2022 (11.3.3) is now available


Hotfix Update

  • Fixed an issue where renaming count shapes may cause errors when the shapes are visible in the viewport.
  • Resolved an issue where some users were unable to open jobs due to certain count shapes having invalid locations.
  • Fixed an issue where calculation sheet items couldn't be deleted when using PostgreSQL 9.2 or older with Cubit 11.3 versions.


Added scenarios where a license will be released for network users when 'Release license when exiting' is checked in Settings.

  • The license will be released when the computer goes to sleep
    • Note: If the user locks the computer, but it does not go to sleep, the license won't be released.
  • The license will be released when the computer shuts down
    • Note: In case of a power failure, the license may not be released due to insufficient time to complete the process.

Performance Improvements

  • Increased takeoff performance for the "Count" tool.
    • Note: with the new performance increases, the functionality of the count tool has changed; when selecting the count tool, you can add multiple count points to a plan/take off; however, these are not saved UNTIL you right-click'
  • Increased viewport performance for importing and loading PDF Plans with a large number of entities:
    • Added a new feature that will auto-rasterise complex layers with a certain number of elements when importing PDF plans.
    • Added the ability to define thresholds for the automatic rasterisation of complex plan layers in the settings.
    • Added ability to rasterise and unrasterize specific layers in a plan.
  • Improved response time for closing shapes during takeoff.
  • Improved performance when copying jobs in the job manager screen
    • Note: Performance improvements are more significant for larger and more detailed jobs.
  • Cubit Select integration-related performance:
    • Improved response time when the system sets empty quantities to 0 or 1 before sending jobs to Cubit Select.
    • Improved the response time of the system receiving picked rates from Cubit Select.
  • General performance improvements in the Estimate Sheet functions, including item insertion and data entry in cells.


Other Improvements

  • Added the ability to export Price Lists as Excel files from the Home Tab.
  • Added the ability to set the 'Add Exclude from Tax' Checkbox in the Details Pane.
  • Added the ability to use CTRL + (Arrow keys) to move word by word through text descriptions in Cubit Estimating.

  • Added the ability to sort the job list by when a job was last updated/worked on.
  • Enhanced the enable and disable status of drawing tools when a trade or item is locked/unlocked by another user.

  • Hi
    Could you please comment on any future upgrades.
    Most of this update is for bug fixes and no real improvement to the software. Last year when I sought some validation of continuing to pay my monthly fee, I was told there were some significant upgrades coming in January. Is that still the case?
