These instructions are current as of Archicad 20.
Updated for Archicad 20. I encourage you to always use Publisher for all standard printing, PDF, and DWG output. All the pertinent info is stored in the Publisher sets, so you don't have to worry about it: Page setup, printer selection, DWG translation, whatever. For any Publisher set, you can publish the whole thing or select items and publish only
Heads up concerning the issue date in the title block. I'm getting very erratic results when publishing; sometimes the title block drawing (on the master layout) updates automatically, sometimes it doesn't. If that drawing doesn't update, your title block data will be wrong, including the date. I have confirmed that the drawings on the master layouts are set to auto

Background: Navigator Theory Issue: You need plumbing (or mechanical, etc) plans, which aren't set up in the templates. This is a piece of cake.
The model is in there. Don't look at it, just imagine it. Think of the real buildings you can't see at the moment. The Lincoln Memorial is there. Trust me. The model is before everything in the Navigator. No model, nothing to Navigate, right? The Navigator, besides being indispensable to your productivity, is good illustration of Archicad's intended model-to-deliverables workflow.
Every drawing or set we give to someone else should be archived as a PDF in the project folder at 2 Output : PDF Archive. This is for convenience and our own protection.
(Similar to: In-House Printing (PlotMaker 9)) For large format output we use that enormous, hot, 16-amp-pulling thing in the middle of the office. (Note: This is about printing layouts. 'Check printing' from AC, for the heck of it, is another matter.)
Another piece of the Publisher puzzle. Publisher automates output processes, including file output. When Publisher saves files, it saves them to the path given in the Publisher set's properties. Under our AC10 workflow, this path should usually be 1 Projects/[ProjectName]/2 Output/Publisher Outbox. When a publication is run, newly saved files will overwrite any that are already in that folder,
It would nice to have standard details in one place, where any project could use them with no need to redraw anything. These would be standard assembly types, foundations, flashing, etc. You can place views from any number of external project in a layout book in 9 or 10. The trouble comes in when you want to refer to the
