More stories LEVELS

We need more levels! Structural Slab Level (SSL), Finished Floor Level (FFL), Finished Ceiling Level (FCL) or any custom level (roof parapet, window sill, top of door etc.) To use the additional floor for each of these levels - how it's possible to do today in ArchiCAD - it's not a solution. Each floor must have a set of levels in Story Settings, each element can be linked to these levels (for instance - lamps to Ceiling Level, Load-bearing walls to SSL, furniture to FFL) and Story Levels marker show or hide these levels, controlled by Model View Option.

There are two customizable Reference Levels. I'm using them now on re-constructing an older structure with different levels within the story. Very helpful to set wall bases, etc. as you describe.

It would be helpful to have the ability to add a few more Reference Levels.

I'd love to see nested levels, Setting up ceilings would be much easier, for example, or even Mezzanines.

Yes, this is absolutely essential.

We should be able to create arbitrary levels. Furthermore, these levels should have a setting that distinguishes between "story defining" levels and "non-story defining". We should be able to convert a non-story defining level to one that defines a story.

This would be akin to Revit's feature where you can create levels that are not associated with a plan view, i.e. they exist as datum planes only. It is a very useful feature.

That would be great
