A new update will be ready for you tomorrow. To download this new update, plus any prior updates you may have missed, just click Help (with TOTAL open), and then click Check for Updates.

This update focuses on a number of performance and stability improvements you'll appreciate. Two of the most noticeable improvements are:

  • Text will no longer cut off in multi-line fields in the PDF version of your report.
  • The form will no longer scroll on its own when you place your cursor in a form field.

Check out the notes below for all of the changes in this update. And, as always, thanks again for giving us your thoughts via the Feedback feature inside TOTAL. We read them every day and we can track them much better than standard e‑mails.

Stay tuned for our next update, which introduces delivery from Appraisal Desktop, without having to open the report.
