oh dear, your question is huge, and needs too much answer. can i suggest you go to help and the tutorials, and study phasing for a day or so? i do lots of renos, and phasing is superb.

Basically: Within all object properties boxes, you have an option to be either existing or proposed. You also have an option to demolish existing. Within the view properties you can then select which phase to show.

What we do in our office is 1. draw the existing plan with view properties on existing 2. duplicate the existing floor plan, rename to demolision plan & change view properties to demolish & demolish as necessary 3. duplicate the demo plan, rename to proposed floor plan, change view properties to proposed & making the proposed changes. Now you have the existing & proposed plans, just drag onto the sheet Hope this helps

Perhaps you are thinking of "Design Options". I am working on a kitchen. I press the "Edit option" button to show the original kitchen, and then press again to show the remodeled kitchen. Here's a link to the webcast that showed me how to do this. It can also be found in the help files. http://www.placeware.com/cc/autodesklearning/view?id=BSD10-20&pw=Audience

Any wall, window, door, etc added to the project initially shows as new; even when you copy an element that you selected as "EXISTING"; the copy become new. 1. click on any item you want to sort in the different phases, right click and select "View Properties" then pick the phase you want to place it. you have to do this with all elements you have drawn, as well as the elements you drw later on. 2. To display the elements that you want or need you can use the phase filter in the "View Properties of the drawing" you have a series of combinations; "Show.. All, Complete, Demo, Previous, New or combination. As you can see, it is very simple, as long as you phase classify either as exixting or new construction, as well as whether or not existing walls will be removed and in which phase will it be removed, ie: existing, new. Good luck.
