To create and edit items, you need to open the Assemblies Database tab on the main project page in Kreo 2D Takeoff first.

What is an item?

Read this article to find out what we mean by the "Item" term.

How to create an item?

  1. Open the Items Base inside the Assemblies Database

  2. Press the New button at the top right of the page

  3. Insert a name for an item. You can also select a suitable icon for your future item

  4. On the right "Properties" side of the panel, tick properties or whole groups of properties you'd like to add to the item

  5. Once the first property is added to the panel's left side, you can create new properties inside the item not leaving the panel. Here you can also hide any property or completely remove it from the item

  6. Now press the Create button at the top of the panel and you'll see the item appeared in the Items base

How to edit an item?

In order to edit any previously created item, you need to click on the Expand icon near the item's name & click on the row with the item's data which appears.

Once you're happy with edits, press Save at the top of the panel.

Operations available with items

Aside from simple operations, such as Expand all / Collapse all / Reset columns / Autosize all columns, you can also:

  • Duplicate items

  • Delete items

  • Create new groups

To perform any of these operations, right click on the necessary item and select the relevant operation.

Set your view in the Items Base

  1. Leave only necessary items in your view by filtering them. To do this, hover over the name of any column and click on the icon which appears. There select the filter icon and (un)tick the relevant columns.

  2. You can also set your view in the Items base and remove unnecessary columns or add some. To do this, hover over the name of any column and click on the icon which appears. There select the last option and (un)tick the relevant columns.
