    How about something with a template that calculates square footage, shows panel sizes, etc?

    Why do you need to show square footage and how you're going to print the panels... in a PROOF to the customer!?

    You can do a template for that in any design/cut/print program. The final output is what they're asking for. Some of those programs already have PDF output capabilities.

    In my opinion, a PDF file is the easiest format for any customer to review.

    Create a LTR template in InDesign with fields for customer, designer, date, revision history, etc. and in the main area place a PDF of the actual art proof, export the whole thing as a PDF with all colors converted to sRGB, downsampled to 96ppi, fonts embedded, read only.

    Corel has tools to show panel sizes..

    Illustrator has CadTools by Hotdoor to calculate square footage and panel sizes.
