yeah..I know. I'm sure Graphisoft has their plate full these days with over 1M users wanting "their ideas" to be implemented onto the next release but yes, I agree...it's something that needs to be in the coding of the program.
Just like showing objects which reside "under" other objects in hidden line.
For example, roofs with overhangs and building elements "below" the overhangs.... Many times, we (designers and architects who work in the trenches all day with the graphic language and feel we have a pretty good handle on how 'graphics' should look) would like to be able to see in a hidden line form the part of a slab, wall, an object let's say, that is actually 'under' the overhang of a building. Meaning, that the simple ability to be able to break up an objects 2d visibility into multiple line displays, like for example, solid light line for a slab that is outside the overhang edge, while at the same time showing a 2d thinner light line in hidden linetype while all the while using the same 3d object............clear as mud eh.
