    So is your boss one of those that will keep Autocad as OOTB and not even modify the line weights or layers? Yes, I have worked with those and they freaked when I gave the prints line weights. It was a good freak out though, my predecessor said Autocad doesn't have line weights and they believed him.

    So Autocad is used as a total drafting tool, no overlays. Info is copied from one segment of model space to another part within a model space titleblock. Paperspace is not used and if something changes you have to go change each "view" one by one copying and pasting each part of what changed?

    Sounds like the "Middle Ages" (DOS).

    yes that's exactly the drawing method here, even blocks aren't an option for her!! do you believe that! I've proposed to her a training in AutoCAD to help her to improve but she doesn't have time.

    So I understand that changing between a non sense way of drawing based on copy paste from a unique old draw and to change to Revit with demands order is a pain in the butt for them!! i'm aware of that but if they don't change quick they'll be devoured for another company which will be already into BIM!

    I'll continue to learn Dynamo in the mean time

    Here is a potential solution for the problem. We used these before quite successfully, although the technology has been underused lately. Cons are it’s a bit slower and consultants will complain that they have to draw their drawings from scratch. Pros: more time to contemplate your design, nice human feel to the drawings and the drawings are real – not based on some 1s and 0s somewhere in some ether-based cloud or web thingy. As you can see, the pros outweigh the cons.

    It is always nice to find a solution for some weird problem you have or question you get because of whatever reason and yes I had some weird thing asked of me at times and it is cool when you find a solution to something that seems impossible at fist. But this is going to be a structural problem at your office and will have to be done for every project, for every change you make for any drawing all the time.

    With the risk of repeating myself (but I know a moderator in here, so it should be OK)
