Explaining Deed Conversion

Net Deed Plotter add-in icon

Deed Conversion Example:

You don’t have to have Net Deed Plotter installed to review the process below.  However, you may decide to install it and the add-in sooner or later.  To see if you already have our add-in in Microsoft Word, open Word and select “Add-Ins” to see if the Net Deed Plotter add-in is there. If the add-in is not there, our Support topic explains how to install it.  Our Net Deed Plotter v5.62 add-in is shown in the image above.  (Our add-in appearance in older versions may differ.)
Below are the easy steps you would follow if the add-in is installed and you wished to learn how to attempt Deed Conversion.

(1) Open (into MS Word) a deed or other document that contains a metes and bounds description. (We used the example description mentioned on the Home page.)
(2) Select (highlight) the metes & bounds (survey).

Metes and bounds description selected in MS Word.

(3) Click on the Net Deed Plotter add-in.
If all went well, Net Deed Plotter should automatically launch and the map should be on the screen as shown below.

If you return to the Deed Call Editor, you should see the converted calls.
It is important that you carefully review the map and proofread the converted deed calls to see if the conversion was correct.  You should read the deed conversion topics in Help and the manual to see the protocol expected and additional information.

You can optionally close Net Deed Plotter or remain in it until you make modifications. You can save the Net Deed Plotter file.
