I have been messing with this new (new to me) layers system, not digging it at all. I can't tell you how much time I've spent searching, posting, trying to get it to work with some sort of consistency. I'm very familiar with layer sets, but they aren't working like they should. Here's an example, I have my stemwall layer turned on in my foundation layer set, it shows to be on in design director, the layer template, the layer filter, the viewport, etc. It's not on! Secondly, I've created layer templates for the purpose of converting to black and gray, each time I change a color and move to the next, the previous color reverts to what it was.
Personally, I don't understand why there are so many layers tools, it feels as though they are cancelling each other out. I like the fact that you can create a template to recall settings for the purpose of printing. I like that you can sort through layers with filters. But it really feels like these things are broken. If anything, there should be step by step instructions on how to set this all up. I find bits and pieces all over the place but nothing that walks you through the process from beginning to end. I love this program, but it feels like some of these tools are being partially built then left before they are working as they should. I can't even get the layer sets to work like they used to. The worst part, if I don't catch the fact that some of these layers are off when I print (because it seems to be random), it's going to frustrate the customer, building department, etc. Any insight would be appreciated.
