Hello, Karyna!

Thank you for the compliments, and we do hope you’re enjoying the latest 4.5 version. To answer your questions:

  1. It sounds like you’re deep in constructing a custom setup with ConDoc, which is great! Your proposed level structure makes logical sense for the project goals you are trying to achieve with your drawings and what you are describing can totally work for you via creating a custom drawing set. In our SketchUp Workflow for Architecture Second Edition, Chapter 15 Model Organization.. we go into details about the logic behind our layering system and why it works the way it does (also featured in our ‘Manual‘ page). It might offer some more insight on how to customize our system to do what you want it to do. It sounds like you’ve got a good understanding about how the nesting works, so test it and see how it works. The nice thing about 4.5 is that you can build, test, and reload drawing sets as you see fitting. We’re happy to help troubleshoot as needed, but this makes sense as you described.
  2. You can definitely add conditional groups as needed, although I don’t think you’d need to add the specific condition twice. You could try it as AGENT>ELEMENT>POSITION>CONDITION with sub groupings within CONDITION of “Finished” and “Unfinished”.

Hopefully I understood your project well enough to advise. To reiterate, the best advice we have is to test around and see if building the custom drawing set works for you. Highly recommend our book if you don’t already have a copy.. this might help to answer more detailed questions.
