Save major time with Trace Mode

August 26, 2014  |  Joel Baker

Our major TOTAL Sketch update last week (read about it here) introduced the new TOTAL Sketch Pro level.  It's designed for power users currently using other sketchers and loaded with desktop and mobile features, making it as powerful as any sketcher on the market, while simultaneously eliminating the need to pay extra for an integration license to use those other sketchers.

One of the new Pro features is Trace Mode, a phenomenal timesaver and accuracy booster for two-story and basement properties.  You just "trace" over the first level to sketch subsequent levels in seconds.  Check out the video below to see how it works: 


Our most significant update to TOTAL Sketch

August 21, 2014  |  Ellana Walker

We have a very important new TOTAL Sketch update ready for you.  It's safe to say that it's the most significant update to Sketch since we introduced it nearly a decade ago.

There are two main reasons it matters:

  • First, it introduces a plethora of new icons, menus, keyboard shortcuts, and stability improvements to the free TOTAL Sketch you've been using all along.  The improved free TOTAL Sketch is now called TOTAL Sketch "Standard", and will continue to be completely free to anyone who wants superb sketching.
  • Second, and most importantly, it introduces an all-new "Pro" level of Sketch, designed for power users who currently use other sketchers.  It's loaded with desktop and mobile features making it as powerful as any sketcher on the market, while simultaneously eliminating the need to pay extra for an integration license to use those other sketchers.  So if you use Sketch Pro, you pay nothing extra to also use your installed copy of Apex or RapidSketch.  (We think you'll probably stick with Sketch Pro exclusively, but it's nice to know you can use the others if you prefer them.)
