On screen view options for door/window orientation

Patrick M

I've had multiple requests for an indicator (I think in the on-screen view options menu would be an ideal location for it) to indicate which side of the window is interior vs exterior. Right now, we only have the little "sun" icon when first placing the door or window, and it's a game of guess and check when updating the interior/exterior trim, associating it to a zone in the schedules, or showing the interior or exterior elevation preview in a schedule for a door/window legend.
An on-screen view option to show/hide the opening orientation sun symbol and maybe even the swing position arrow that only show when placing would be a game changer for people spending weeks updating schedules or window/door trim.
