Don't explode 2D objects when creating details

James Murray
Please bring 2D objects into details intact, rather than exploding them. The advantage of this is precisely the advantage of using objects in general, so I won't elaborate.

agreed, i wish details functioned more like sections.....

Would also be good if text and dims in the source views would carry over as well - into detail windows. We often paste in sheets of old details (onto a plan view/storey) from autocad, and use the detail bubbles to manage the details and track their placement in the cd set, but the problem with snapping a detail bubble over a 2D detail on the floorspace is that text and dimensioning gets left behind, and a subsequent cut+paste operation does not paste in place, but rather 30' up and over...from the rest of the elements!

Great wish James!

And speaking of wishes, how are the plans for this year's gingerbread house coming?
