So I have a remodel I am attempting to draw of a old house with a 4 square Gambrel second floor. No easy task, so the owner wants me to fit 4 bedrooms and 2 baths up there, but I am giving him options for 4 and just 3. With the upstairs Within the gambrel (not under it) the 4 corners are useless so space is tight. I thankfully will not have to ever draw the roof.. I think. So I drew the 4 bdr version and pushed to Layout page with first floor views etc. All is good. ... then I Saved As.. three bedroom version plan file, altered the second floor to only be 3 bedrooms, pushed to (same) Layout so both the 3 bdr and 4 bdr floor plans are side by side. looks great ..got them labeled, print to pdf and...crap the layout has two 3 bdr floor plans side by side.
I go look at the Layout and it now shows the same... I pulled back up my original 4 bedroom plan file and it too was altered to become 3 bedrooms. what the heck?
So Idiot me.. I restore a back up of my 4 bedroom file and perfect.. it is now a 4 bedroom file again. So I go to get my Layout and BOTH of the plan views are 4 bedrooms... and of course both plan files are now 4 bedrooms again. and There are no .bak backup files with the 3 bedroom layout!!! &^^%#$!&@%%!!! and $%##$*!!
Is there any way to recover from one of the UNDO files Chief writes as it lays down its trail of bread crumbs? there seem to be many of those.
And I wonder if this has happened to anyone else? I used to have similar issues with Microsoft Access doing unwanted (system-wide) blanket changes to multiple databases at once back in Windows XP, and apparently it was a cache problem if you had files which began with the same name like pumpkin1.mdb pumpkin2.mdb pumpkinspice.mdb pumpkinseeds.mdb, etc...
Thanks for any help,
Summer came and went in a flash, it seems!
