How does Single Click work?


With Single Click Takeoff you essentially just point and click on an area on your bid and PlanSwift will have it automatically detect the boundaries and draw in the area for you. This tool is as simple to learn as it is to use.

To begin select the single-click tool under the “Home” tab. Now fill in the information about the name, color, fill type, and what folder you would like it to be stored in (much of this information will be defaulted) and click OK. Now you can simply click in the region you would like Single Click to discover and it’s calculated.

If there’s a shape within the area selected that shouldn’t be highlighted you can just right click in the shape and select the option “Single-click subtract from section” and hit the escape button and it will no longer be included in the area.
