Detailed Instructions:

The "Select Sheet" dialog will open after you checkout a project. You can return to it by pressing the "Select Sheet" toolbar icon.

To select a Volume Sheet to view from the project you have checked out, first select the Document Volume from the list on the left. Then, the Volume Sheets in that Document Volume will be listed on the right.

Double-click on a sheet to close the "Select Sheet" dialog and load that sheet for use in the main window.

To quit working on a project and work with another, press the "Check In" button in the upper right corner of the "Select Sheet" dialog. This will "Check In" the project and return you to the "Select Project" dialog.

To create a new Document Volume, press the "New" button from the bottom left on the "Select Sheet" dialog. In the "New Document Volume" dialog, fill in a name, and then press the "Import Documents" button at the bottom. Now the select files dialog will open so you can select the document files you need to import.

Similarly, you may append document sheets to an existing volume by pressing the "Import Documents" button on the bottom right of the "Select Sheet" dialog.

QuickEye supports several image formats: TIFF (.tif), JPEG (.jpg) and PNG (.png). And as long as QuickEye Viewer is installed, you can also import PDF files (.pdf). There will be some delay while importing PDF files because it immediately creates an image file for each page in the PDF file.

The key in the top right of the dialog is a reference for which sheets have measurements (*) and those that haven't yet been uploaded (X).

This gives quick reference for which sheets have mark-ups, and those that still may need measurements added to them.

Once you have a Document Volume selected, clicking Edit on the left will open Edit Volume dialog.

Here, you may edit the name of the Volume, or delete the entire volume, images and all. All Volumes have to be deleted before you have the option of deleting the project (from the Edit button on the Select Project dialog).

When deleting a volume, a verification dialog will open to confirm the operation. Select Yes or No.

To edit a Sheet Name, select a single sheet on the right, and press the Edit button below. The Edit Sheet dialog will open.

Here you can change the Sheet Name, or delete the sheet. To sequentially edit many Sheet Names or rotate many sheets, use the Turbo Edit function.

You may also delete multiple sheets at once by selecting them (click on the first, then shift-click on the last to select a range) and then use the Edit and Delete buttons.

A verification dialog will open to confirm the operation. Select Yes or No.

The Peek button opens the selected Volume Sheet in a seperate window, so that you can reference a second image while you estimate, such as a specification page, elevation drawing or detail sheet.

It's call the "Peek" window because you can't create any markups on it, it's only for reference. It does, however, support the Quick-Ruler. Just press Q on the keyboard to turn it on or off.

This is especially useful when measuring a floorplan in the main window and peeking at elevations to determine wall heights.

Just use the Quick-Ruler to measure the elevations. (You will need to open the elevation in the main window first and set the scale so the Quick-Ruler will read out in the correct scaled units.)

The peek window is most useful if you have two monitors.
