Revit Tip - Phasing and Room Names - Revisited...

Michael, one of your fellow readers, brought up a great point to the little tip I posted about Phasing, Demo, and Room Names:

"Having a separate Demo phase is definitely not the way to do it. It is a work around for the existing rooms problem but raises further issues. 
What happens when you place a new door into an existing wall? It demos that part of the wall in the same phase as the new door was placed. If you have a separate demo phase before the new door was placed then that demolished wall won't show up in your demo drawings because it wasn't yet demolished in that phase."
That is an excellent point... And, of course, brings us full circle to my very first post about Room Name Frustrations...

This is why I love when you guys comment and start a dialogue... The three aforementioned posts are perfect examples of how great and informative these conversations can be..

Now, what do we do about these Room Names?!?!
