TOTAL Sketch Pro

TOTAL Sketch Pro is a paid upgrade to TOTAL Sketch that includes advanced features you won’t find in the free version.

Here’s what’s included with TOTAL Sketch Pro:

  • Free integration with other sketching programs:  Included now  —  We think advanced users will prefer Sketch Pro to other sketchers like Apex and RapidSketch because of its features and low price.  But, if you’re still paying extra for an outside sketcher and want to use it, the integration is included with the Pro level.
  • Trace mode:  Included now  —  This is a phenomenal timesaver and accuracy booster for two-story and basement properties.  You simply “trace” over the first level to sketch subsequent levels in a few seconds.  Use Trace Mode on your Apple® and Android™ devices too.
      See Trace Mode in TOTAL Sketch
  • Photometrics:  Draw over hand-drawn sketches, building plans, or aerial images to complete both simple and complex properties quickly with less hassle.  Learn how to sketch like a pro here.

“The Trace feature included with TOTAL Sketch Pro is essential for appraisers who have to complete 1.5 or 2-story home reports.  I found it extremely helpful, especially if the structure is a higher-end, custom quality design with many angles in walls on the upper floor.  The Trace feature is a must-have tool for an appraiser to be more efficient in the field or at the desk.”
— Michael Barnes, Barnes Appraisal Company, LLC

“I am using and love the Trace Mode feature.  I had a complicated drawing the other day and needed assistance determining second floor, one of those lovely Cape Cods, and it helped being able to trace part of the second floor.”
— Robert Pullon, Freedom Appraisals

“Wow.  I will admit up front that I am a dyed-in-the-wool Apex user.  I saw the Photometrics feature [in TOTAL Sketch] and it definitely piqued my curiosity.  Over the weekend, I had a subject that was tailor-made for using this feature.  I have the overall width from a survey, and I had a scatter of dimensions on the building, but not all.  I dropped in the image and it took me no time at all to finish tracing five different areas on my ground-level floor plan.  As I traced over the lines that I did have dimensions on, the scaling from that initial scale-check was working perfectly.  I went back and tried tracing another sketch in Apex and finally gave up.  I had trouble scaling the image to begin tracing accurately.”

TOTAL Sketch is better than ever — better design, better features, better usability

Sketching is vital to what you do, and your software should be able to keep up.  The all new TOTAL Sketch is easier and faster than ever before.

Here’s what’s new:

  • A new toolbar with more options, and icons designed in a larger, clearer style: Nearly everything is now accessible from the toolbar.  The better icons also serve a very specific purpose:  If you have a touchscreen Windows PC (a Microsoft Surface, for example), the new icons with higher contrast make it easier to select the tools you need when you’re out in the field and the sun is glaring on your tablet screen.
  • More hotkeys and options:  You can do things like “draw to wall” with one keystroke, swap your point of beginning, and much more without ever reaching for the mouse.  (Click here for an impressive printable PDF of all the keyboard shortcuts.)  At the same time, we made sure that there are menu items matching those shortcuts, so explore the menus and you may see things you didn’t know Sketch could do.

Larger icons perfect for Windows tablets.

Go paperless and lose the clipboard

Creating detailed mobile sketches is as simple as tapping and swiping with your fingertips.  Simply enter your measurements, then swipe and tap to draw exterior and interior walls.  Or, send measurements from your Bluetooth-enabled DISTO laser measuring device directly to your phone or tablet.

It’s easy to define lengths, angles, arcs, and areas.  Drop in custom symbols and labels for a completed sketch in the field.  So no more carrying around that clipboard or spending thousands each year on paper and file cabinets, TOTAL for Mobile syncs effortlessly to your desktop so you’ll never need another scrap of paper.  All your notes, photos, measurements, and comments are all kept in the Digital Workfile, available any time you need it without having to hunt down a manila folder.

Go paperless and lose the clipboard.

TOTAL for Mobile is more than sketching:

  • Eliminates clipboards, messy papers, and wasted time from retyping written notes
  • No Internet or data connection needed to collect data and sketch

“TOTAL for Android allows me to upload my photo pages right at the subject, during the inspection.  I use TOTAL Sketch, switching from Apex.  While it took some adjustment, I now love it.  TOTAL for Mobile syncs seamlessly.  I have eliminated a camera on my inspections.  I now carry only my phone and my laser measurer.  I am at my inspection 2-5 minutes longer, but I am assured to have all the data I need prior to leaving.  The field pad allows me to jot down any and all notes I need, just like the old clipboard.  I figure with the mobile app, laser measurer, and photos, I am saving, easily, 20-30 minutes PER house.”
