I would like to see the default worksheet selection to be "All Sheets" instead of the present "Active Sheet Only". Likewise, I would like to see the default under "Forms - Phases and Sheets" to be set to "Select All".
Or, to at least have the option to set them as defaults, perhaps under the "File - Measure Options" area.
So, here is the main reason;
I am relatively new to Measure Desktop. One of my first jobs that I completed using it, I referenced the "Worksheet" page to pull my totals from, and missed $700 worth of 6" rubber covebase, because I did not have "All Sheets" selected.
I realize that, with more use, it will probably become second nature for me to select this, especially after having lost cold hard cash on this job.
HOWEVER, suppose two years form now, when I am an ace at using Measure, I get right to the point that I would normally select the "All sheets" option, and, as happens multiple times daily, I am interrupted or called away from my desk. Fifteen minutes later, I return, forgetting where I left off, and continue processing a proposal, or worse yet, an order.
I believe this would be a simple addition and/or a harmless change to default these options to "All sheets", and I can't imagine any reason not to, but like I said, I'm new to Measure. So if someone has a counter reason not to do this for all users, I'm all ears.
Even if that is the case, it could still be made a configurable option under the File - Measure Options properties.
Thank you for listening,
