   - TAD respects the to-and-fro that happens in designing. We have given //​object-oriented undo// which means, each logical object (architectural element or part thereof) preserves its own undo history. Say you edited one element, say the "​livingRoom"​ and then went about creating/​editing other objects in your design. Then you realize that you need to undo the edit you had done on "​livingroom"​ but you do not want to lose what happened after that. No problem in TAD Designer. You just shift to the "​livingroom"​ and specifically undo just that; leaving the rest of the changes same as before   - TAD respects the to-and-fro that happens in designing.

   - TAD allows any number of iterations as you flesh out your design. You may go back and forth, hesitating between various concerns of the design. Should I keep the "​guestbed"​ on the first floor? Or is it best kept on the "​second floor"?​ No problem in being hesitant and hazy. TAD allows you to do all that   - TAD allows any number of iterations as you flesh out your design.

For example, you can calculate floor space index and energy consumption while preparing concept design. ​The TAD platform on the web, encourages people to develop probes that can be plugged into those designs that require them. Over time, we are confident you will get a lot of probes (//apps// to those who want to use Android or iPhone terminologies) The advantage of these probes is that in the initial stages you are pointed more or less in the right direction (for example; the quantities would be approximately correct -- in case it was quantities that you were probing for) Later, as you flesh out the design more accurately, the results of the probe also starts becoming highly accurate ​
   - TAD even helps in iterations, by allowing you to place any number of properties (of any kind, any number) on any logical element of the design. TAD does not put //​blinkers//​ around your eyes, and force you to think of only the properties that the software company (which is us) who made the software. Not at all. You can even place a property onto an object which makes sense in your design -- it could be completely unique, one-off situation that you were facing when designing. Architectural designing is full of that -- we call it //​just-in-time modeling// where often the architect is made to consider a point that suddednly crops up    - TAD even helps in iterations, by allowing you to place any number of properties (of any kind, any number) on any logical element of the design.

   - Talking about iterations once again: While designing you may proceed quite into the design only to realize that the design did not meet your initial higher level objectives. We call such an architect a //potter at work.// So, in some situations, you may actually have to dismantle large parts of your design (metaphorically,​ the potter breaks up the pot being made on the wheel, and starts all over again) TAD Designer allows this large jumps very easily -- getting back to the earlier stages than where you are now is not frustrating. You would not be staring a laboriously constructed building model, with lot of detailing which results in a serious reluctance in your office to start once again   - Talking about iterations once again: While designing you may proceed quite into the design only to realize that the design did not meet your initial higher level objectives.
