I have a wishlist item, I wish the shadows cast would be automatically placed at the bottom of the display order, so that shadow do not obscure/ hide any of my linework. In a related wish, it would be nice if the display order was not related between plan view and sections views, better yet, to even have the display order independent story by story. But, one step at a time I suppose. Does anyone else think this might be helpful?
Sorry for shouting, but I think this is absolutely essential.
For instance, on the attached screenshot, (which was taken while panning in elevation so as to display all lines prior to releasing pan command and letting shadows fill in), you can see all wall and roof edges as they should be, albeit in hairline weight.
In the attachment on the next post, you can see how the shadow fills have obscured both wall and roof edges, and material surface fills.
I don't know why I keep trying to use shadows, because I am always disappointed by these fundamental errors.
disclaimer: If this issue has been corrected on any of the recent Hotfixes, please let me know. (I have been reluctant to update as I see others are having problems still with new updates, and I'm also not 100% confident in my own technical abilities, with regards installs, updates, system setup etc., so am happy to stay with the devil I know)
This is the next post, as referenced in the last post....
P.S. 287 views of this wish, and only 9 people have voted. C'mon people, use your democratic right. (And why do 2 people think this is not needed, other than if they never use shadows? Explain yourselves.)
Is there a fix for this? The yellow fill pattern next to the left hand parapet is where the fill is in shadow in "distant area" of elevation, where "uniform pen for uncut contours" is set to pen 1 (black). Yellow don't look so good on coloured elevations.
