I have an single family residence I'm producing addition drawings for. It is phased with existing, demolished and proposed. I have a new view prepared for each phase and these all work fine until I get to the site views.

When I place a pad on the new portion of the drawing, that "new" pad is showing up on the existing site plan as well as in the existing 3d. I read another post from the past that said to copy the existing site and paste it into the new view, then find the existing and demolish it. It does not seem to copy and even if it did and I were to demolish the existing site, it will now show the existing site as a translucent purple on my Existing 3d drawing. Ugh I've attached a screen shot of the 3d view after I demolished the site showing the purple.

I'm really struggling with this and am hoping I can get a clear answer on how to avoid showing this pad on the existing phase OR get the demolished phase to show the grass green in color and not this translucent purple.

Any help is much appreciatted.

I'm only guessing but it sounds as if you're having issues with phase filters and the phase of the view.  If you demolish something in the same phase it was created it is considered a temporary item, which is usually displayed as a dashed purple.  You may have demolished the existing site in the existing phase (or new site in new phase).  If you put a building pad in on new construction, it should only show up in views in which the phase is set to new construction and the phase filter is set to show new, new + previous, show complete, etc.  Make sure the 3d view you are working in is set to the proper phase and phase filter before you start changing/copying+pasting anything, because whatever the view phase is set to the pasted item will be on that phase.  HTH.
