Edit Transmittal Sets


can we please have some means of editing/updating closed and burried transmittal sets without deleting all the sets that followed?
It doesn't come up often, but when it does, my clients are always frustrated at the amount of work they have to do to fix an error, mistake, or omission from a few weeks back

But isn't that exactly the point? To acknowledge errors and then issue a new transmittal?

Also the drawings might not really match anymore, so "correcting" the error will just lead to confusion, no? Since a "newer" (by index) plan would show an whats now older status.

not everyone issues a transmittal set and sends it right away. AC, one of the most flexible bim authoring tools has decided in this one feature to restrict how people can use it. And I don't see a need to.
I have personally run into a situation where a permit/plans review comment was picked, but a CD revision was issued after the permit revision. A new permit correction was not necessary for the small change made, but we did have to send the new page to the plans examiner. I had to delete the contractors issue, edit the date for the permit revision, and rebuild the construction doc revision.

The point is correct but "in practice" it is not.

In my transmittals I always use a custom line for Date since the "official" release date might be before or after the actual date or as in this case no day is needed.

In addition...also to allow for issuing part of transmittal set instead of deleting all drawings included in set, close book, issue drawings and create new issue and add remaining drawings to be left as WIP. Very cumbersome when you're working on large projects and only need to issue a few drawings while leaving the rest as WIP.
