Sheet Layers, Annotations & Drawing Co-ordination

Question

I stumbled upon this today -

http://www.solidworks.com/pages/screencasts/choosesolidworks_all/ChooseSW_Drawings.html

I wish VW sheet layers, annotation and drawing co-ordination took a page from this book. Intelligent relationships to the 3D model, friendly unified user interface and drawing efficiency. (Rather than all the piece meal wishes here like the simple ability to align the title text of a keynote legend.)

My work (theatre scenery and exhibit design) is a weird hybrid of architecture and industrial design (ie. individual scenic elements need to be drawn much like the part in the video, but I also need to provide plans, sections and elevations much like architecture). This style of toolset would streamline the drawing process so much.

NV could take a lot of pages from Solidworks. In fact what I'd like is Solidworks for Architecture.

That video blew my mind. The HOURS this would save me... I can't even let myself dream that someday we'll see something like this in VW.

I'm with you, Kevin... Nemetschek has the entertainment industry over a barrel.

"Simple Practicality!"

What all CAD products need. Unfortunately VW is still detached from this mindset.
