John

I am glad to see you using my template.  I am curious to what others have to say.

I do not use the ratings anymore as I have 11 different report conventions. I also change, and add to my template on a daily basis. The one you have now is not so friendly in the field. (I hate looking for text that is there but I can not find) I am trying to make my template so it works quickly in the field. I have cut down on my picture taking. No need to have minor issues like exposed wood surfaces or a common crack on the drive.

For example I have sub categories in the siding for vinyl, cedar and brick. One HIP user suggested using a . to separate categories. 

My electrical section was hard to use in the field. Now I have short comments like Open Grounded outlets and below a longer version to use in the selection panel. I also try to create the comment to have the text related to the component in the first three words so I can find easier.

One area that slows me down are the limitations, like attic area visible, foundation, framing.
Personal belongings. I Have it better in my revised template.

It is a lot of work to create a really good template that is through but easy to use and quick in the field.

Thanks to Dom for the additional columns. Dom, have you done the drop down box yet??

I hope this template works for you and if you or any others have suggestions that what this is all about.

Haven't worked on the drop down boxes for almost 2 weeks as I was finishing up the Mac version. Sent out another beta last night and hope to hear back today that it's working correctly. Then I can get back to it.

David, you should post an updated report sample when you have a chance.

John, the report is looking even better. Keep up the good work :)
