    schedule design options

    I have two files linked into a master project file. One of these linked files uses design options (DO) and I have several instances linked in with different options enabled. Within my master file I don't seem to be able to schedule the elements from the active DO's from the linked file. I have no problems scheduling from the other linked file, which does not use DO's.
    As I write this I'm thinking about how the DO information is transferred to the parent file and I think I'm getting the answer I don't want to hear (DO's are per view not per instance...DO's are not 'activated', they are just 'visible'...)
    I'm going to ask anyway. Am I going to be able to schedule these DO elements in the master file? Can schedules be made aware of design options?

    ok, so now I'm going to share my solution...

    What threw me out was the fact I can't apply DO visibility for a schedule view template through the view templates dialogue, here you can only access the appearance values for schedules. However I can select visibility/graphic overrides from the schedule properties pallete and change the desired 'visibility' of my DO's from the linked file. This is rather tedious as I have already set up a view template with the correct DO settings (only) which I simply apply to my other (non-schedule) views.
