Show of hands please (cybernetically speaking). Has anyone devised an efficient method of using object based style formats for x-ref’ing multiple drawings into a plotting (deliverable) sheet?
Here’s the drill – my final plotting drawings collect x-ref’s into a title and border sheet. These plotting sheets display various line weights and intensities to depict existing vs. proposed features. Where it gets dicey is when I wish to “screen back” proposed features in order to accentuate specific plan disciplines, such as screening back proposed buildings on a Landscape Plan.
This is standard fare for layer based styles but I’m drawing a blank (pun intended) with object based styles.
It can't be done smoothly with ByObject styles. In the current version,
ByLayer is the only style management scheme that makes sense.
I hope to see styles somehow become a part of the object, even when xref'd
in a future version.
