  1. Can I upload my own specs?

    Yes, you can easily upload any specifications to Smartspec then reuse them across multiple projects. This is useful if you would like to specify a particular manufacturer that is not yet in Smartspec or if you have generic specifications that you would like to add to a project.

  2. Can I export to MS Word?

    PDF is the only export format from Smartspec. All editing can easily be done online with Smartspec.
