Summary Tab

The Summary Tab allows you to view total quantities of a job.

In the Summary Tab you can also apply soil swell/yield factors to layers, balance the job site, convert the totals to metric units, and export the totals to the Estimating module or a spreadsheet.

Tips for Using the Summary Tab

  • Depending on your current view on the Summary Tab, certain keyboard shortcuts may not be available. For example, pressing [B] to balance the amount of material for the job only works when you have selected the Active checkbox for at least one area.

  • The top of the Summary Tab displays the quantity totals for the selected areas.

  • In addition to the Export button, you can copy data out of the Summary Tab manually. Hold Shift and use the arrow keys to select the data to copy. Press Ctrl+C to copy the data, open the program into which you want to paste the data, and press Ctrl+V.
