QuickScale is for taking measurements and areas off pdf drawings. All you need is the scale of the drawing and/or one reference measurement. Calibrate the pdf by clicking on either end of a known measurement and type in the distance, this will scale the pdf. From then on, click on the points and corners of the areas and dimensions to calculate them.

Windows 10 October Update – Update!

Following on from our earlier post (see below), we can now advise that Microsoft have withdrawn the October 2018 Windows 10 Update following reports from users that the Update was deleting documents.

If your computer has already been updated to build 1809, we recommend that you revert back to the previous build 1803 using the instructions given in our earlier post.

New Windows October 2018 Update – QuickScale Issue

We have discovered a problem with the new Windows 1809 Update (released on 3rd October 2018) that causes QuickScale to hang.

The problem manifests itself when you click the Open button on QuickScale.  You get an unhandled exception dialog with the message: "Visual Styles-related operation resulted in an error because visual styles are currently disabled in the client area."  None of the buttons on the dialog respond to clicking and the only way to close QuickScale is via Task Manager. 

We are urgently looking into a fix for the issue.

For any customer affected by this update, we suggest that, for the time being, they revert back to the previous Windows version (1803).

To revert back to the previous Windows 10 version open Windows Settings, select ‘Update & Security’ then select ‘Recovery’ then select ‘Go back to the previous Windows 10 version’ and click the ‘Get Started’ button.

As soon as we have a resolution, we’ll let you know.


Some anti-virus programs are reporting one or more parts of QuickScale as either a trojan or a virus. QuickScale is NOT a virus/trojan - any warning you may get when you install/run QuickScale - providing you downloaded QuickScale from our website - is a false-positive.  See our Blog page for more information.
