  1. Hi there. My computer does not have a disk drive. Do soft plan products offer a digital download of the actual program? Thank you.

    • Yes – SoftPlan remodel has a version of SoftList. This version is basic and cannot be customized. If you’re looking to customize the way materials are counted or the reports the full version of SoftPlan and SoftList is required. Note that the full version has a remodeler’s setup option on install.

    • SoftPlan remodel is the perfect tool for basement remodels. It’s really easy to do. You can download a trial and try it yourself or have one of the sales people draw a basement job for you. It won’t take long at all.

  2. So If I draw out an entire floor and save, and then draw out another floor and save as, It won’t save both into the same project because it can only do one floor?
