You can also change the wording of your Estimate Title to appear as anything you want. Possibly call it Estimate, Proposal or Contract?

This would appear on your estimate in the highlighted BLUE area below.

Thank you for the reply. It will help with the wording of the sections top, bottom, etc. My question is how can you copy it or make it so I dont have to retype it for every estimate?

Once you set it as a default, it will be used in all estimates. Click on the "Set Defaults" button to do this.
