I think most of us are not appraisers :| . Those who are might still be checking the program out.

Okay ... this is the Appraisal Software thread, so I just kind of glanced through it. Having watched your video now, it looks good. Perhaps even someone like me could use it :P . I must say, though, I don't recall having to plot colored stones while taking the GG course. Could have zoned out in class, though :wink:

Hi,

first i would say i strongly appreciated Farshid's efforts in developing the software, i played a little with it despite i still hadn't enough time to perform a full test.
neverthless my first impression is very good, it could be a real help for every appraiser.
i would suggest few points that likely can be developed in order to have better results:

Custom angle rotation of the inclusion feature

it would be great to add such feature, flip horizontal/vertical functions are not enough IMHO.

Undo button on the toolbar

i know there's a ctrl+z option but i would appreciate a dedicated undo button on the toolbar

Group of the feature with multiple objects

when you undo a step it's impossible to have already imported features which include multiple objects grouped again

Freehand brush

definitely a necessary function to add in order to have a fully functional software.

these are only few suggestions i can give after an initial test, hopefully i will proceed for a full test soon and report FB here. I would strongly encourage other forum members to testing it. :D

Thank you :D
ciao
alberto

Dear Alberto thank you for the comments,
i will consider and inform developer to implant these features in to the software, some of the features you mentioned plus some other from others was already on my to do list and developer was working on them.
i appreciate more comments from others.

I too have tried it out and what I was missing was also the possibility to free rotate and do free drawing. Otherwise nothing to complain about. I am very used to keyboard shortcuts so the "undo button" I did not even think about :)

Might be a very handy piece of SW.

Hi Farshid,

i tested a little the new freehand feature, i'm not able to draw with other colors than black.
i select the color in the line & fill window but when i draw a line the color switches automatically to black.
hope to have time soon to test it properly.
ciao
alberto
