We want to make a proposal. So first we add an address to the address book. Select in the menu bar: System > Contact library.

Enter an address:

Enter another address:

We go now to the text editing part of the application. Where we can make our proposal. Select in the menu bar: System > Proposal library. First we make the upper part of our proposal. Then the lower part. In the middle are our specifications with prices.

To make a new proposal, click on the insert button.

Name the proposal for example: proposal 0.

Click on the insert button.

Click on the stop button. The insert form will disappear.

Select: proposal 0

Click on the Select upper part button.

Click in the editing part. So the cursor has a position. Next we want to select an address in the address book. Select in the menu bar: Contact > Insert.

Select a row with the address you want to insert.


Click the green check mark button.

Make three empty rows and on the fourth you set the cursor.

Select in the menu bar: Contact > Insert.

Select a row.

Click on the green check mark button.

We have a logo, so we add six empty rows where the red circle is.

Edit the text like this for example. (You can copy this text from your browser. But paste it first in notepad. Otherwise you copy html markup in the editor and it is a html editor. You will see that strange boxes appear. So, first paste it in notepad. And then copy it from notepad to the Estimator Application. This way you get rid of the html markup.)
