Existing & Proposed ...

Hi, Let's say I have one existing ground floor drawing and one proposed ground floor drawing and I want to put them one on each other. Usually I copy the proposed drawing and paste it on the existing drawing. But which is the best way to do it? Because if I find a mistake after copying one on each other then I have to restart again by opening the previous file to fix the mistake and then I copy and paste again and I am sure this is not the right way to do it.

Thanks in advance.

You need to set the criteria so it searches only for those walls that you want to override.

So with the 2 criteria as shown in you image (Element type is wall and Renovation status is As Built to Sanction) that should only select walls with that particular renovation status.

You can add more criteria to include/exclude certain elements.


The criteria filters in or out the elements you want to override.
