You can add a multiplier to a demarcation heading so that all items underneath that heading (on all drawings) are multiplied within the final Excel spreadsheet.

How does adding a demarcation multiplier help?

Being able to multiply all items under a demarcation heading can be helpful when the PDFs you are working with, don't necessarily reflect the total quantities required on a project.

For example:

  • You have a single "typical" PDF, which reflects a number of floors (EG: Levels 2-5).
  • You have a single apartment type, which needs to be multiplied by the total number of apartments of that type.

How do I add a demarcation multiplier?

  1. Open a drawing and navigate to the "Split" tab.
  2. Click on the demarcation heading that you want to set the demarcation multiplier for.
  3. Click on the demarcation's advanced options (3 small dots to the right its name).
  4. Enter a number to multiply that demarcation heading by.
  5. Press enter or click outside of the demarcation heading field to confirm the value.
  6. Repeat steps 2-5 for each demarcation you'd like to add a multiplier to.

Once the project has been saved and processed, this is how the multiplier is represented in the Excel spreadsheet.

In the example above, you can see that only first PDF / column has a demarcation, and that demarcation is being multiplied by 5. Additionally, the numbers affected by the demarcation multiplier have been highlighted red.

Note: demarcation multipliers affect all items under the demarcation heading they're applied to, on all drawings.
