It's really dumb that ArchiCAD doesn't simply allows to cut a free-form detail marker, which makes everything else around disappearing and leaves the live model to be documented.

With your option you have the advantage that you only create 2 layers per drawings set of the same scale and the disadvantage that when you work on your model everything is on top of model parts, making the annotations difficult to type, read and edit

With our option we have more layers and layer combinations to create, though when I work on the model everything looks correct and clean, avoiding possible mistakes.

The main cons about your option for us, which makes it not suitable, is that the detail plans are next to each other and the text would overlap. That would force us to put the annotations into a separate layers for each room/area that we need to document. Back at base one again. :/
