Multiple layer suffix's ???
I am trying to use Renovation Mode for the first time. Looks good on practice samples. On a real project I became concerned about many confusing layers that it was adding. In layer manager I see:
A-Door
A-Door-D-D
A-Door-D-E
A-Door-E-D
A-Door-E-E
Does the program check to see if there is already a status in the layer name before adding another status???
The first time I noticed a couple dozen of these layer names with double status suffixes I became alarmed, could not undo far enough and reverted to an older saved file. Now as I am redrawing it, same thing happens.
How do I Demo a door, and keep the opening? When I demo the door it fills in the wall? and then I need to 'demo' the wall infill?

This is all and good on the base plan, but how about views to go onto sheets?

In the view mode, how do I get the demo plan and the renovation plans to be separated for notes, dims, etc.?

Hello, anybody home?
Ok, I am talking to myself I guess.

Autocad Architecture 2011 Renovation mode
If you open a file that has been worked on in Renovation mode, and new construction objects are on layers without a status suffix (ie. 'A-Door' layer means ‘new door’) when you enter Renovation Mode again it will change those objects to existing (A-Door-E)…. Hours and hours days and days it took me redoing stuff to figure this out…
