I agree with CADaver too!!  :-o

We bind all xrefs and save a copy of that submitted set so that at any time we can go back and plot that exact drawing. Makes life a lot easier then having to try and figure out what exactly changed 3 revs ago on a drawing that is constantly updated.

When we do revisions, we call them   Revision-1--06-16-06    (or whatever the date of the revision is) this allows us to triangle and bubble changes in that revision, also a memo of changes that took place in that revision lives in the file, so we can determin when a change was made, and  what it affected.

We do it close enough to exactly the M-dub does that it's not worth pointing out the differences.

We are still working on a standard for the office, but since I'm the one that does most of the revisions and bubbles I've done the following.

Created a layer called Revision #X (X being the revision number, well duh huh?)
Make revision cloud and triangle white - heavy lineweight in our office

When a new revision is made, turn the old revision to a light grey color (very light lineweight) and make new Layer Revision #X and make that white.

I don't mind that one. Actually, I prefer that, but for some reason, they want some form of historical tracking.  They can look at the Rev block (Dates, descriptions, etc), thaw the rev cloud to show where the changes occurred, then they can refer to the project file if more research is required.  Overkill, I know, but it goes back to the "That's how it's always been done around here." story.  Just because it's always been done doesn't make it right.

Mike,
when you finally get Adept ~ it keeps an automatic revision of every document change. It even keeps an audit trail for each doc telling you who signed it out and when, and who signed it back in and approved it ~ very useful stuff.
The previous revisions can be accessed easily if required and you can do comparisons if need be.

No.  We do the clouds where the revision is.  Paper Space revisions get clouded in pspace and mspace revs in mspace.

Yes, clouds are annotation, all annotation is in PS.
