We have a couple of notes saved on our template.  Normally we fine tune the notes as per the project and drawing requirements. Seems to work OK.

My current doesn't use them, we don't need to because of the nature of work we do, but in previous firms we've used xrefs.

I couldn't think of anything worse than using general notes as x-refs.  :?

P.S. I hate x-refs at the best of times. I'm civil and we have no need for them.  :-P

Our notes are in tables. Delete the row that is not needed in the drawing, and I'm done
Thanks for explaining the word "many" to me, it means a lot.

Being from a Civil/Survey background, I have found that when Existing Topo and Boundary drawings were XREFed into the Proposed plan drawings the accidental loss of information was prevented. When working in the Land Survey Dept. Survey Techs were the only ones that could edit said survey drawings. If an Engineer needed additional information it could be made available to them. I have witnessed on numerous occasions the accidental loss of information by Engineers because of their need to hit a deadline. It doesn't happen all of the time, and yes there are and have been backups. Just my $0.02.

It also helps when General notes are involved. You only have to edit one drawing file not every one in the set.
