Save the Estimate (hit the Enter key, or choose Save Record from the Edit menu).


Version 3.01 of Goldenseal construction estimating software stores project dimension data in a temporary location, if the Estimate record is not yet saved.

Technical Details

Unlike other fields, dimensions save immediately to the estimate. The new modal dimension system introduced in 3.0 was not saving estimates immediately, so it complains.
