Hello Karyna,

I do apologize as maybe I misunderstood your initial question. Hopefully this helps clarify:

  1. You do not have to group in order to place elements into a layer.. you can just as easily select the geometry and assign respective layers. This will not change the functionality of how the tools work or how the drawings are created. Grouping however, makes it easier to select geometry with one ‘click’. What you are referring to as having doors withing the same layer that will ‘change’ seems to sound like it would work better as a conditional layer as well. So for example LEVEL 01>DOORS>INTERIOR and LEVEL 01>DOORS> EXTERIOR – All doors are on the ‘DOORS’ layer, but you would have two nested groups that you would then apply one set to “Interior” and the other to “Exterior”
  2. I think your second question answer is quite clear; if your model only has one condition of doors, then you would not need to have the condition at all. You could place all your doors on the “DOORS” layer and disregard the condition layers. Again, deleting them will not effect the system, tools, or drawings.. ConDoc will simply ignore what is not there. It is definitely configurable and you can set up your project exactly like you described with “ARCHITECTURE>DOORS>FLOOR>KEEP”
