Locking or Pinning the Elevation Marker Location in Plan and Moving Storey Lines and Names

I think it would be helpful to allow the user to pin the location of the Elevation Marker so that it does not move if the horizontal range is amended.

 

While we're at it, can we please allow to move the Story Level Symbol and Text/Names to move in both directions; inwards as well as outwards. Current settings only allow to move them away from the "view range".

 

So often I want to show my Section Marker further away from the building to make it clear in Plan but then I end up with Story Lines and Names way too far away from the building.

@jakubc7 I know the problem and agree 100%.

The Elevation Markers (centre mark) themselves should be fixed (possibly with a reset to centre option), but the width range should allow for asymmetric offsetting in the elevation window whilst retaining the marker position on plan. 

 

The Section Markers (end marks) should also be fixed (possibly with a reset to centre option), but the width range should allow for inward & outward adjustment to enable better placement of the story markers in section.

Great to see this being looked at. @DGSketcher comment on section markets is also spit on. It would also help to resolve the issue of not being able to bring the section storey text towards the model rather then only outwards.
