Measure & Calculate

Measure & Calculate

Powerful tools to perform and track complex measurements with ease, speed and pinpoint accuracy.

Complex measurements, made simple

Undertake complex calculations in seconds. Scale plans and perform additions, subtractions and percentage calculations across multiple pages. Select multiple measurements for quick totals and hide/show measurements. Keep track of your measurements in the floating Measurement Panel and use tags to easily group similar measurements together.

Verify compliance without looking away from your plans

Ensure development is compliant with relevant planning rules such as floor space ratio and landscaped area using the handy built-in calculator and percentage functions.

Perform specific assessments with ease using specialist tools

Supercharge your assessment using powerful purpose-built features such as the Light Table, Overlay, Cone of Vision and Recession Plane tools.

Annotate & Redact

Annotate & Redact

Effortlessly annotate and redact your plans with smartly designed mark-up tools.

Easily flag changes or areas needing attention with visual cues

Mark up your documents with customisable arrows, clouds, text boxes, sticky notes, images, stamps and more to highlight areas of concern, draw attention to amendments or specify required design changes.

Improve RFIs and referrals by communicating visually

Describing an issue or a required change in words can be time consuming and hard to perfect. Powerful annotation tools help you clearly and effectively convey meaning with applicants and referral agencies, while eliminating unnecessary back and forth communication. The result? Faster dispute resolution and better outcomes.

Quickly redact sensitive content of any shape

Use a variety of redaction tools to remove sensitive information and floor plans. Draw redactions across irregular shapes and leave clear commentary about the nature and reason for the redaction. 

Stamp

Stamp

Fast-track your plan review process with smartly designed digital stamps.

Objective Trapeze finds the best spot, so you don’t have to

Smart Stamping automatically detects clear space, and places stamps in the best possible location on each page, significantly speeding up your approval process. 

Stamp in seconds

Stamp a 100-page application in a few mouse clicks, without having to flick through all the pages to identify which stamps are covering information or drawings. Save time by only reviewing the pages where insufficient clear space was found. Reposition stamps the way you want.

Fully customisable stamps

Create and save custom stamps that include your council logo, signatures, images, date, time and metadata from your eDRMS, such as reference numbers and assessor names.

Compare

Img trapeze compare

Compare

Don’t scour over a document searching for changes. Document Compare automatically detects and reveals these for you.

Quickly compare, pixel by pixel, two versions of a document

Document Compare removes tedium and saves you time by automatically detecting changes and highlighting the amended content. Easily review pages side by side or overlaid for greater context.

Catch sneaky changes at a page level

We’ve all reviewed updated plans to find a balcony has ‘suddenly’ been extended or a building given a completely different footprint than what was discussed or shown in previous plans. Document Compare finds those changes and highlights them, so you’ll never miss a thing again.
