Hi Robert, I have been using the Template for a few weeks now and overall I am disappointed. While there are some good aspects, there are a number of shortcomings that have made the use of the template less productive than I had expected (unless I have been misusing the template). I will send another email in a few weeks when I have used it some more but here is my initial feedback: 1. User Manual. There should be a manual that explains the intent and concepts behind the template. While some of your videos cover some of this they are scattered and the user would be best guided by having a document that details the reason things are the way they are. As an example the Layers and Layer combinations take time to work out. Initially they seem odd but with use in a project the logic behind them becomes more apparent. Of particular interest would be an explanation of ‘View maps’ to ‘layouts’ to ‘Publisher’ as there are multiple choices and it is not obvious how they all thread together. 2. Renovation Filters do not seem to do what they are intended to do. I had to re-load the Archicad v25 Reno filters to get things working. As an example, the ‘New Construction’ filter had the new items in white and the existing in colour. 3. Title block. Seems too small for A1. 4. Wall and Roof types have abbreviations which you have to guess (no manual) and seem to be elements that are less common in typical residential construction. More common walls and roof types seem to be missing. 5. Quality. There are sections and elevations buried in the file from the example job you supplied. When publishing they cause warnings and need to be removed. There are also details from previous jobs buried in the template that pollutes it but not a big issue as they are not impacting the use of the template. On a positive note, having a reference file from an existing job helps. It would be ideal if it was a complete file rather than one with items stripped out. I hope this helps. Regards, Michael
