What other appraising can I use Quantum Leap for?

You will find the program flexible enough to allow you to appraise antique items and even watches and pearls easily. Because Quantum Leap starts every item with an ‘open’ description area you can always describe the item exactly as you desire, then proceed by describing the intrinsic details of the item using the automated components.

Can I plot in Quantum Leap?

Yes. Quantum Leap has state of the art onscreen plotting. The easy to use plotting feature automatically presents you with the appropriate plot diagram and allows you to pick from a legend of inclusion symbols or draw inclusions yourself. You can purchase Perfect Diagram to extend your choice of plot diagrams (it contains over 300 different plots) and you can insert plots wherever you like in the finished report. In addition, Quantum Leap automatically prints a legend of plotting symbols to accompany the plot in the report. If you have a touchscreen computer you can even plot directly onscreen with your touch ‘pen’.

Can I use PDF software with Quantum Leap?
