Doug handles loads of useful, interesting, and interactive Q&A about Civil 3D Property Sets in this video.

It helps to remember that Property Sets et al are a special form of data Style in Civil 3D.
Since this always comes up...
Dynamo and Dynamo Player scripts are a great way to automate lots of Property Set creation, maintenance, and production data mechanics in Civil 3D.
Use Dynamo to significantly reduce the amount of manual Property Set user work in your production processes.

This short video covers the essentials of the reasons and methodologies for the Separation of Powers in Civil 3D.
In other words, why separate drawings for Civil 3D Features is a mission critical practice in Civil 3D.
Some great production tips on XREF clipping, Civil 3D Labels of XREFs, and other production annotation method and practice in here.

Hint: IREFs of DWFs of those completed XREFs plot and print even quicker for larger projects. Your welcome.
