You can also change the labor and material prices when the takeoff is being entered into the estimate. In the third toolbox line, on the right side, there are two drop down boxes. One says Material Level and the other says Labor Difficulty. Just hit the drop down arrow and click to which level you want to be in for either material and /or labor.  From that moment on all items entered into the estimate will be at the levels you choose until you change them back. Any items entered before you changed the levels remain as they were.
