Sometimes a single measurement is desired for several separate lengths or areas. eTakeoff handles this using "disconnected" points. The last point of the first length or area is "disconnected" from the first point of the next length or area.
To create two disconnected groups, first add the points in the first group, press this button, then add the first point of the second group. When you press this button, it will look like it is "down" to show that the next point will be disconnected. When you add the next point, this button will pop "up" and the “Add Points to Measurement” button will be down as you add more points to the second group. A measurement can have an unlimited number of groups.
The shortcut key to add disconnected points is the letter "G".
