Is there a way with Building Options when dealing with existing plans to associate a building option with multiple groups without having to edit in every plan?

The only way I have been able to do that is to set up my groups within the System Options and then on the Model tab, Building Options, select "Reset Visibilities". This will bring the System Building Options into the current project. If your Building Options are set up consistently from project to project this method works just fine. Note that naming and sorting are based on the original names, not the current names. So for instance if you renamed Building Option 1 to Plumbing in one project but in another you renamed Building Option 1 to HVAC then as far as SoftPlan knows they are both the same because they were both originally Building Option 1.

Thanks. I have some variations sometime so I'll have to take the long road.
