Anyone else using this strategy? Seems to be a good way to solicit input from practice-based and region-based groups in a large firm with intent of QUICKLY capturing the default checkboxes for real master development in e-SPECS Designer. We are being cautious though, because we don't want to accumulate psuedo-masters that become impossible to maintain. So the key is having Designer-skilled staff ready to grab what the disciplines/offices suggest, work it in (plus high-level checkboxes to control as much text as possible with a click or two), then somehow archive the BDT and notify the participants to test the real development master, then release it into the approved office masters.

not really sure what you are after here, but at my firm we use eSpecs for Designer as the repository for our Masters, and these sections are then moved into project databases in eSpecs for Revit. We keep a backup set of Masters in Word that we maintain along with eSpecs for Designer sections. Interspec provides a Master spec editing tool in Word that allows the spec writer to update and maintain both sets of Masters (in Word and in Designer) by editing only one section. It's a slick system.
