Display Order in Section/Elevation views - No value check / Value defaults itself

Hi AC Software Testers and QA Engineers,


I was adjusting Display Order in Section views (Teamwork and regular files), but another time I open file, elements that had Display Order adjusted defaults to original Display Order level. I was trying to figure out what is happening but it looks like information about Display Order in "Element Information" showing wrong "Display order level" value no matter to what level I put elements in section/elevation views.


In the example below I chosen "Send to Back" and "Display Order Level" value still remains "6".

It works slightly differently in elevation to what it does in plan.

In plan send to back will move a line to level 1.

In elevation it will go to level 6.

But press it again it will go to 5 then 4 then 3, etc.


Don't ask me why.
