Go to the update CTA-1

Buildsoft has released a new update to Cubit Estimating, with version 10.1.1. See details of the enhancements and fixes below. 


Windows and Doors


By default, Autocount will be set to Manual Selection; so if you’ve selected an Item with a Window Count or Door Count Result set, the window or door will be inserted into that Item. 

If you have an Item from your Estimate selected that does not have a Result of Window Count or Door Count, you will be prompted to use Autocount to insert that Item into an appropriate Trade.  


Other Improvements

We’ve also improved hiding Windows and Doors when using the Eye icon in the Shapes pane and when you select a Window or Door from the Viewport, the corresponding Item from the Calculation Sheet is selected.

We have also improved what happens when you update the details for a Door or Window, including when you edit the Name and Manufacturer

The Openings window now uses a natural numeric sort, so you can better organise your openings.



  • We have improved the Ruler when opening a Job in Read-Only, so you can set the Size and Colour of the line in the Viewport.
  • We have improved Importing Excel files into Cubit Estimating, so Items with only a Description will be included when Skip empty rows is checked.
  • We have updated the Cubit Select shortcuts to send you directly to cubitselect.com, instead of redirecting you from mybartender.co
  • We have improved how Auto Select works for round shapes, so your takeoff will be more accurate for any ellipse spaces.
  • We have improved the Cubit Estimating Management Console, so now when restoring a Backup file, you can select to Clear and Restore.
  • We have added a new setting in Cubit Options, Return to previous selection when closing Find that, by default, will be checked.



  • Fixed an issue where the Totals between a Job and a Grouped Job might differ if you have Picked Rates within a Rate Sheet with a Heading using Rate Sheet rounding
  • Fixed an issue where updated Option Codes weren’t reflected in until the Job was closed and reopened.
  • Fixed an issue where sometimes an error message might be shown when editing the Notes field in the Details pane of a selected BIM model.
  • Fixed an issue where copied Shapes, with adjusted Length by Centres measurements, were not not maintaining those adjustments.
  • Fixed an issue where setting Deduct to Two Sides was not working for Items with a Result set to Vertical Area less Openings.
  • Fixed an issue where editing multiple rows from the Details pane of a Shape was only editing the first selected row.
  • Fixed an issue where sometimes changing the Fill option of a Shape had no effect.
  • Fixed an issue where indenting a Code from the Grouping Codes window sometimes could delete a row.
  • Fixed an issue where an error message might be displayed when undoing adding a new node to a curved Shape.
  • Fixed an issue where Exclude from Total was ignored when clicking Add Rate when inserting a Rate from another Job.
  • Fixed a rare issue where sometimes the Picked Rates where showing in the Total column instead of the Rate column.
  • Fixed an issue where clicking the Code column for a row, then clicking away would sometimes change the Code for an Item.
  • Fixed an issue where sometimes Cubit Select was using the wrong total for an Item, if that Item’s Markup was set to -100%.
  • Fixed an issue where you could change the Change column between Confirmed and Pending for a BIM model in the Shapes pane when in a Revision.
  • Fixed an issue where selecting a saved report set to the Comparison category would throw an error message if generated from a Job.
  • Fixed an issue where the Insert Plan button sometimes appeared large.
  • Fixed an issue where using Find in a Job might sometimes appear poorly spaced when viewing Cubit Estimating on a 4K, or higher, resolution.
  • Fixed an issue where grouping a Job on Quantity Codes, correctly coded Items sometimes appeared under the Incorrectly Coded heading.
  • Fixed an issue where an Job exported with Include Picked Rates checked and Include Rate Sheet unchecked would ignore Picked Rates when imported.
  • Fixed an issue where sometimes you can be prompted to update the Option Group for a Locked Job.
  • Fixed an issue where entering 001 in a cell would automatically load the RUP001 formula.
  • Fixed an issue where the sometimes clicking with the mouse might sometimes switch original and revised Plans.
  • Fixed an issue where the BOQ formatting controls menu sometimes flickers.
  • Fixed an issue where clicking Go To Next Result didn’t work for BIM Shapes.
  • Fixed an issue where clicking Insert Constants would display an error message when the Result column was selected.
  • Fixed an issue where the Length in a Calculation Sheet wasn’t updated when a door width was changed for an Item with a Result of Length Less Opening until that Job was closed and reopened.
  • Fixed an issue where percentage adjustments in Rate sheets were not calculating correctly on Picked Rates for copied Jobs.
  • Fixed an issue where Picked Rates were not transferred to a Grouped Job when inspecting down to the Calculation Sheet.
