Our company for years now has been doing 1/4" details on our plans and had to use layer control, then one fantastic day we decided to copy the floor plan above the 1/8 inch plans and use a separate plan to create our 1/4" plans now layer control is no longer an issue, and because we use detail bubbles we no longer need to draw the detailed info all on the same floor plan leaving room for all the lighting and such on the 1/8" plans. Recently today included I have been creating some generic annotative blocks which represent the same objects we use as MEP devices (they are our old block drawings re created into full blocks with annotative capabilities) now we are using these instead of the mep devices to free up memory on our computers to avoid crashing, and on some projects (for Us) full blown MEP is not safe to use like on high rises way too much information for our current systems so we go into an overload state and crash, we have one station with a 64 bit system and have been putting it through it's paces and it is doing rather well overall,
But the thing I wish for is this, using the insert command having the option to at the time make the block annotative and have it work properly with sub text. Right now I have been having to create the block then add text and in a paperspace view set the text where I want it to show up in each of the desired view port scales (just make a block and select annotative and you will see what I mean) the sub text goes crazy when you insert the block oh yea you will have to re scale your block to the proper size after creating it.
