So...I'm listening to a webinar yesterday that Dan at Chief Experts/Pro Academy was holding. The topic was new features in X10. Seems like a topic you would do in March...but so be it.
Early on he covered "Plan Views" and made the categorical statement that to him this feature didn't do much for him. I was a bit shocked...as I use this feature all the time...and have found it to be very useful...but, he has been using the software much longer than I have and maybe is "set" in the way he uses the software. One thing I've noticed about Dan is that he doesn't seem to use "annotation sets" much either...and if you aren't really using "anno sets" then it's somewhat logical you'd not be using plan views either.
For me...being able to assign a specific "reference set" to each plan view is incredible. This feature alone makes "plan views" very powerful.
Just wondering what the consensus is....are you using "Plan Views" in your day to day work flow?
Just installed X10. Getting my feet wet learning about "Plan Views". Watched videos, scanned ChiefTalk, read help files.
I use legacy plans for about 80% of my work. Is there a way to import plan views into pre-X10 plans?
Been Chiefin' since 2004...
I've begun to manage "plan views" in X10. This is a really great new feature...but, the OOB settings are only a start...not the total picture. So, similar to annotation sets to some degree, I think it's necessary to have more defined views...but, I'm not sure and don't want to create a bunch of views if they aren't really needed.
So...lets take the OOB plan view called "Electrical Plan View". To me...you need an electrical plan view for each floor? Can a guru chime in and tell me if I'm on the right path? I know you can select "any floor" in the plan view DBX...and use the up and down arrows to move through the floors and the same "view" will be applied to each floor. But...I think you may want to use a different ref set on each floor or maybe have some unique text or something.
I'm not sure I know what I'm doing...this is why I'm asking.
