Renovation Filters Applicable to Complex Profiles/Composites

The renovation filters are great! It seems that system would be able to replace the need for Existing/New/Demo layers for several project situations.

I wish I could apply those filters to a complex profile though!

I've had projects where I've applied new 'skins' over existing facades. If I could have a complex profile that included any applicable demolition as well as any new construction built atop the existing wall construction, it would make a single wall profile much more versatile. I'd imagine all you'd have to do is apply the renovation categories to the files that make up complex profiles.

In theory, this would also apply to composite wall profiles as well.

We're 2015 and there is still no fix apparently. Has anybody figured out a decent workaround for the renovation and insulation of old walls?

There are two strategies AFAIK:

Old composite wall - to be demolished / New composite wall with insulation
+ workable solution with windows and doors
+ compatible with EcoDesigner
- plans of renovation phases have to be corrected manually
- quantity states are wrong

Draw separate 'walls' for old layers that have to be demolished and add new insulation layers as walls
+ 2D plans are right
+ quantities are right
- not workable with windows & doors in practice
- not compatible with ecodesigner

Anyone figured out a decent strategy? Are there any insiders who know if this is on the agenda for future releases?

This is under MUST !

Has this been enabled in AC20?

Absolutely essential if the whole renovation process is to work properly. Is it that difficult to add a renovation status check box for each fill in the complex profile window, or each material & separator in complex materials?

Much too technical a question for me, but what about our AC gurus...?
