Neighbour Elevations Shadows - In the Elevation tool

In the elevation tool!!!

Can we have the ability to make the model elements before the fade distant elements line fully transparent but still cast shadows on the model elements after the fade distant elements line?

The 3D vectorial window copy and paste shadows polygons is so slow it is unworkable and if there is a design change then the whole process has to start again. I know there is a Japanese pug in but surely it is time for Graphisoft to simply implement this function into the Elevation tool.

I am confused at how you are using the fade function... You are placing your elevation / section behind the neighbouring buildings and overriding them to be transparent, with things beyond the distant marker set to uniform?

Hi, I am asking for a function to be added to the Elevation tool that would work similar to the fade distant elements. It would enable the generation of shadows on neighbouring buildings
