Hi there. I am trying to make an scetch with a sloped floor! One side of the room has a ramp for wheelchair access, and the other side has the slope difference made up with steps. Can't figure out how to slope the floor, only the ceiling!
Thanks very much!

Regarding tic-sheets, I don't use them.  

I use graph paper and only draw diagrams.  My camera records the scope for both structural and contents damages.  The contents photos provide macro views of make, model, and serial numbers.

I've been doing it this way since '05 and it works great for me with large and small losses.

I recently had an adjuster show me that he could lable his photos using the Function Keys.  F1 was Front Elevation, F2 was Left Elevation, etc.  He opened his photos in the claim, place his cursor in the Image Name box and then hit the corresponding Function Key.  This is a shortcut that will help me label photos faster and I thought others could use it, too.  Any help would be appreciated.

I have switched over to 27.1 and I can't for the life of me figure out how to automatically figure waste factoring on sketch roofs.

Unfortunately the auto sketch feature requires a creative touch unless your images are purchased from Pictometry or other roof imaging software. Even when using this the features are difficult for non CAD people and manual adjustments tend to remove the previous "auto" calculations. Below is a great free step by step training manual for FREE imaging using google maps, MapsGL and  Google Earth.

I have Xact 25, it crashed, I have pulled out the estimates by going to

 C: \Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Xactware\Xactimate25\xm8\data\estimates\instance=0

I pasted them into an active xact 25 at same location but they won't show up when I open Xact 25.    They look just like the the ones that do show up and are in the same file location.   Any ideas

I need to make a bay window roof. I used the Bay window with roof but once in place, I can't update the proper measurements. I don't need the window, just the roof. Any help?

Has anyone else had a problem with the latest Xactimate small update causing Xactimate to crash and burn. Right now, I am #11 in the Live Support Que and started about an hour ago at #39.

I also had problems with the small update. My issue was that the install would hang up. They finally helped me by taking over my computer, loading and changing many file settings. This was when I tried out Xact28 on a win8. I have since downgraded back to 27.5 on a win7 computer.

I hope they can fix your issue.

dparsons,

did you ever get straightened out? I too had this problem when I downloaded the new price lists. It just told me that a small update was available, but I never was able to get it installed. I even went to XM8 and asked for an answer and even got a reference number and they said that they would get back w/ me. That was two months ago and I still have not got an answer from them.  Same thing when I downloaded the new Aug price list. I'm running 27.5 w/ Win. 7.
