Build your process with Layers, Annotations, and Saved Plan Views.
Saved Plan Views allows you to control Layer Sets, Defaults, Default Sets, current CAD Layer and Reference Displays. Using Saved Plan Views allows you to open multiple 2D plan views simultaneously, save the floor and zoom information and control the display of pony walls associated with the view.
Layers and layersets can help declutter a plan without deleting the information.
Each Layer Set contains the same group of layers, all the individual layers created in a plan; and each layer set can show, hide and display those layers uniquely.
Default Sets allow you to change many defaults at once: Dimensions, Text, Rich Text, Callouts, Markers, Revision Clouds, Notes, CAD and Arrows. When you combine Default Sets with Saved Plan Views you improve your productivity as you create your construction drawings since you can control both Layer Sets and all of your Default Settings.
Like floor plan view, what displays in 3D views is determined by the active layer set.
Turning on the Reference Display allows you to see objects on a floor below or above the one you are working on.

One way to show the as-built condition on a remodel project is to create an "As-Built Mask" CAD block of the existing structure and underlay it on the remodel project.
