Default to Insert Surface – If this field is checked when an estimator clicks Insert, the Insert dialog opens. If the estimator is estimating a job that requires the use of Surfaces Database, The EDGE will default to opening the Surfaces database first instead of the Group database. If the box is not checked The EDGE will default to opening.

If when you click on the Insert icon or open the Insert Group dialog and do not see a Surface Code field do not be alarmed, it is not part of your program as such you will only need the Group Code field.

Write Information Messages to Event Log – If your having problems with The EDGE and call AES Tech Support we may ask you to check this box. Depending on the problem the Tech Support personnel may be able to get additional information via the message.

NEW:
Show contract amount net cost on recap screen and report – If checked, The EDGE will display the Net Cost for the bid. Due to the fact it is a total net cost it is displayed on the same line as the Selling Price, do not confuse Selling Price with Net Cost. If left un-checked, the net cost will not appear on the recap screen and report.

After Performing An Operation On Marked Lines – Over the years there have been many requests as to how marked lines should be treated after they have been marked and something done (move, delete, etc) to them. At one time or another we have tried a couple of things but we could not get a general consensus of what to do. Therefore, we have come up with a drop down menu. After much debate the three finalists were placed in a drop down menu. Please select the least offensive one to you and try it.
