Is there a way to clear out the Area, Room(s), Detail pulldowns?

Yes there is. Go to the project summary and move your cursor all the way to the right. There is a button there to reset locations. Does that help?

I don't seem to have this reset that you are referring to.

What company are you with? I believe that it's been in the system since around 2006 but I would like to check on the version you are using.

Thanks for the info. So let's try again. From your estimate or master estimate file go to the project summary, then use your cursor (the rectangle, not the mouse pointer) and using your arrow key move it to the right until you cannot move it anymore. You should see a button there to reset locations and alternates. Does that get you there?

That worked.
Thanks, those have been bugging me for years.
The last guy said there was no way to do it & didn't want me messing with it.
