    How Do You Draft Source Fours?

    I have to say, that PDF posted above just hurts my eye's. When you start getting into very large plots, i.e 5-600 units all colour coded, I feel it just becomes a mess. Generally I would never cut/insert colour from a plot. I would always use the colour/instrument schedule for this.

For ground plans? Has to be AutoCad, I feel its what the software is aimed at and the tools are far more...
