Maybe I'm missing something fundamental, but when I work in a Plan Set, I like to have ALL the Plan Set drawings open to check that they are displaying exactly what I want to be displayed. Typically we use 11" x 17" drawing sheets, so Plan Sets have 10 to 15 drawings in them. I end up right clicking every drawing and choosing OPEN IN WINDOW 1. Is there ANY way to open ALL of a Plan Set in one go? And if not why not?

 

I know Softplan like us to close windows when we are not using them, but no matter what, I ALWAYS have all the relevant project drawings open at the same time. Am I alone in this? When I work in a project I spend a great deal of time moving between open drawings, and NEVER open and close drawings. They are always left open.

 

Using PLAN SET template surely a OPEN PLAN SET button isn't to much to ask.

I have had the same problem with two projects lately. I have a long exchange with SoftPlan Tech, and not much worked.

 

In these two,  when the project(s) were fully loaded (all drawings) and I select "New Drawing" (not New Project), SoftPlan has asked "Do you want to close the current project."

That normally happens when bringing drawings in from other directories ... Like standard details etc. I've also seen it happen when working in an odd directory like the RECOVERY directory. I like it to remind me that I may not be saving a drawing in the directory I think I am using. However, I've never seen it happen opening a new drawing!
