Estlite Trial Version - Mouldings

Post by Jag62 » Fri 25 Sep, 2020 1:07 pm

Hi all,

In my search for a pricing tool I downloaded a copy of the Estlite trial, however there were no mouldings available in the dropdown list. Is this because it's the trial version or do I need to reinstall the software or manually load the data ?
I also have problems with the Pre-View tool which similarly has no data (mouldings, mounts, etc)

Regards,

Neil

You have to download the moulding pricing lists from the suppliers, in Options, there is a download tab, (I think, not by my computer ) chose which suppliers you want, and press download, when working out a price, and inputting the moulding, you need to input the suppliers ref first then the moulding ref, such as sI.fest/0031 for D & J Simons FEST/0031
I will check tomorrow when in front of my computer and update this post

Thanks Steve,

I think I expected too much from the demo. Having looked again there is a demo mouldinng called Z but looks like options to upload mouldings, etc aren't available until you buy.

Is there a general concensus on the forum as to what pricing tool to go with for a newbie ?

I've looked at FramR, Estlite, Simulart & Wessex options but struggling to decide.

Regards,

Neil

To tel you the truth, it's been a long time since I used the Trial version, you can always post a question in the Questions & Suggestions nearer the bottom of the forum, which is for Estlite questions, John (forum Admin) who is the Estlite developer will give you an answer

The "trial" refers to the period of unregistered use and has nothing to do with the way the program functions.
In other words, during your trial period you have unrestricted use of the application.

Thanks all.

Forgot to say, where you are in the program or tabs, pressing F1 will bring up the help page to that part of the program/tab
The benefits of EstLite is once you have paid the 'one off payment ' there is nothing else to pay, updates for life, I paid up 11 years ago
