What is the File Manager?

File Manager is the storage for your PDF, CAD drawings and image files. Also, here you can set up any kind of folder structure suitable for you.

How to access the File Manager?

The File Manager is hidden by default. You will see only the Quick Access panel at the very top of your project area in Kreo 2D Takeoff, where all your open pages are shown. Once you click on the plus button placed on the panel, the File Manager opens.
