What is the advantage of using the Grid elements as the site boundary?

Keep all the Project specific objects in Embedded Libraries.
Use office Libraries or Project specific Libraries stored on the server, avoid having objects in Embedded Library.
Use only Archicad native Libraries.
Where is the best to place Site Mesh when modelling the Site?
You can place the Site Mesh on any relevant Story.
Height Datum Reference Story – lowest Story in the Story Settings. This Story never changes elevation if you need to play with storey heights and all height of the Mesh will be related to Project Zero.
Create a new worksheet called Site Mesh and place the Mesh into the Worksheet.

Delete all elements on Hidden Layers.
Split the file into Main file and Layout Book file.
