Plotmaker Backup

Since using Version 8 i have lost 2 Layout books full of drawings. Since then i have asked everyone in the office to backup their layout books in the case of the file becoming corrupted. Although in our office the whole system is backedup it does not solve the problem of losing a days work.

We need a backup file (like PLNs backup BPN). Losing 20 or even 100s of layouts is not a happy event.

Good wish!

We've also been asking for "Teamwork" functionality in PlotMaker since the .LBK format became the standard.

We end up dividing up the project into multiple .LBK files to allow for multi-user editing. That might help you in this situation - you might only lose a portion of your project layouts if you have it split into smaller .LBK files:
Plans.LBK
Sections.LBK
Elevations.LBK
Details.LBK

Although, you do lose some of the great documentation automation when you split up the Layouts.

I want to vote 10 times (or more) for this wish, but I have not found the original post, if any.

Since posting this it has been added to Plotmaker, thanks Graphisoft. However I would like to expand on this topic and ask for data safety in Plotmaker. We really need an autosave function!
