2D Object placement in S/E windows in Elevation mode

Currently we can place 2D object views, even of 3D objects, in S/E windows. But this is ONLY the plan view of each object.

This would be MUCH more useful if we could place an elevation of an object in the S/E window. For example, select a grab bar object, change to the elevation preview before inserting, and then get that 2D *elevation* representation of the grab bar inserted, rather than the plan view of the grab bar.

I can understand placing items is a little tricky because where in the in-out axis is the object being placed. (I wont call it the z-axis because the sections view uses Y axis when it should use z) Gravity to a wall item could be useful in this instance.
But you are right it should do that and other items as well such as
-two walls be allowed to intersect.
-stretch walls/slabs/roofs
-change terrain heights
-insert a window/door
-and one I would really love
stretch a point on the top or bottom of a wall to give a raking wall top (or bottom) or gable end

Well ... you knew I was going to say this ... but ot would be even easier if you placed the grab bar in 3D window. It is there then in plan AND elevation.

I think it must be easy for GS programmers to realise this.

When object is inserted on the S/E window it must
automatical be inserted on "home" floor of this S/E.
When inserting it must use section line surface as a zero level surface.

Possibly it can be not connected to section line at a later time.

PS: it will be much better to get the ability to DRAW some walls (for windows frames), slabs (for different arrangements of facades),
to DRAW some POLYLINE HOLES in the walls and so on.

It's not something controllable from inside GDL. Archicad's own engine works against us in that case.

I am making this "BY HANDS" averytime:

1. i'm Draw some facade arrangements on the plan,
2. Save them as GDL objects from appropriate point of view
3. place them back to plan
4. Finetune their vertical position on section-elevetions.

I WANT TO MAKE THIS ALL AT S/E WINDOW WITH AC BUILDING ELEMENTS.

Basil, I agree.

Now this may not be the complete answer but if you haven't seen this before
then have a look at modeling with objects in section/elevation window.

Good old Objective, where is the new version on the new AC11?

I'm using 11, Joseph.
Ralph's site says 8.1 to 11 for OBJECTiVE
Contact him direct, he is very quick with replies.
