Power Tip: Planting Plan Variations

Feb 06, 2015
Recommended By:  Hilton Landmarks
Our friends at Hilton Landmarks wanted to know how to make different versions of a design within the same DWG. Our answer: Use the COPYCLIP command along with Work Areas to copy a complete planting plan within a drawing.
Keep in mind that when you change data in either the original or copied version of a plant, for example, the changes will apply to both versions of that plant. What if you want to make changes to the copied version but keep the original as is? If so, you can save the DWG as a separate file, which also saves the project data as a separate .lfx file. Open the new DWG, import the project data under a new project number, and you can make changes to the copied version of your plan without affecting the original.
