Add "Dimension Origin" to the Level Dim. Settings

Stress Co_
Advisor
Page 1675 of the AC20 Reference Guide states:
"The origin from which Level Dimension values are calculated is set in Level Dimension Tool Settings."
Yet, this setting DOES NOT exist.

Please add the setting (as shown in the linear dimension settings) or allow us to change the default.

Sadly, as with all 'democratic' systems, hardly anyone has voted for this, probably because very few people are even aware there is a vote being taken.
I just hope that the lords in the development tower hear our pleas and deem it worthy of their efforts. Simple stuff - just add it. Anything stopping it from being added as an interim update (the old 'hotfix')

Common Graphisoft, I am the 19 voter for "Essential" concerning this tool!
How many votes do you still need to implement it?
Not AC22 but next Update AC21 please

AC22: How has this not been fixed yet? Client has indicated all the levels I had shown to project zero now need changed to sea level.

Edit: The work arounds mentioned above weren't working on the Mac. Thankfully found this alternative...
