Prepare to be dazzled by the new report interface in Appraisal Studio
. It is simply the best on the
planet. All the other appraisal companies have tried but failed to provide a true WYSIWYG
et) report interface. Appraisal Studio
is the only appraisal software to display
all the forms in your report in one view. Just think, no more having to switch back and forth between
the different forms in your report. We have also mastered page zooming. Zoom to any percentage
from 10 to 500, not to mention automatic zooming to fit your screen width and screen height. Once
you have setup the screen the way you like, we save your settings so your reports appear the way
you like every time.
) and (Figure

dropdown list, respectively. You can choose from any predefined value between 10% and 500%
or simply type in a new zoom value.
form panning similar to Adobe Acrobat. When the mouse
pointer is a hand, simply click and drag the form. This is often much easier to do than
scrolling the form using the standard scroll bars.
The Appraisal Studio
Tool Bar (Figure 3
) allows you to quickly switch between the important report editing modes. Each mode is
loaded into the same screen space, instead of launching in separate windows. A fast way to exit out of
any mode and return back to normal view mode is to press the
Jump to Form on the tool bar displays all of the pages in your report using our best-fit
thumbnails logic (Figure
). Now you can quickly see all the pages in your report. To jump to a specific page, double-click
on top of the page. As a matter of fact, the location where you double-click on top of
the page is exactly the location where you will end up back in the Normal View form-editing mode.
If you rest your mouse on top of a page for a second, a tool tip will appear containing the page title.
The Manage Forms mode (Figure
) allows you to see all the categorized forms available in
so you can quickly search,
add, remove, reorder and rename the forms in your report.
The Photos mode (Figure
) allows you to quickly click and drag photos from multiple photo sources into your report. The page
selector arrows automatically find and scroll to the next photo page.
Calculations and Carry-Forward Field Information
updates its calculations and carry-forward field information as you type it and all calculation
and carry-forward fields can be user over-ridden. When you override a calculated or carry forward field,
the field will become outlined in red. This indicates a User-Overridden Field. The field
will remain outlined in red (or user-overridden) until the value (or text) in the field returns to the Appraisal Studio
or carry-forward value.
To see what the calculated or carry-forward value is for a user-overridden field, simply select the
field, and then rest your mouse on top of the selected field to popup the yellow tool tip showing
the "Calc" (calculated or carry-forward) value and the "User" (user-overridden) value (Figure 7
If you want to reset the value back to the "Calc" value, press the F7 key.
The @ sign, used to do automatic comparable adjustments, has been enhanced with a new dialog allowing
for more specific adjustments to be performed as well as remembering the adjustment criteria. Remembering
the adjustment criteria allows Appraisal Studio
to automatically readjust an item's adjustment results
when the item being adjusted changes. The @ sign automatic comparable adjustment (Figure
) still uses the same fast keystrokes as it did before.
There are just too many new things to cover in this quick preview, but we wanted you to be aware
of some of the more important changes to help you get started. We encourage you to take some time to explore and
see all the new things that Appraisal Studio
offers. For instance, if a warning message appears in the
status bar at the bottom of the report screen, just click on top of the message and the field where the
message is coming from will automatically become selected,
or how about double-clicking on any thumbnail image to see an enlarged view.
