Wall Lines of Doors/Windows handled well with Ganging

Right now the Wall Lines at the two sides of a Door or Window are turned off when Ganging is enabled on that side.
I am wishing for a functionality where a Door/Window would sense when there is another Door/Window adjoining it on either sides and both elements would set Ganging checkboxes intelligently in their respective Dialog Boxes so the Wall Line would disappear where they adjoin.
This could actually also work in vertical Ganging cases so Sections would also be generated automatically correct.
There could be a checkbox which would enable the user to choose between this automatic Ganging recognition or manual Ganging setting.

Automatic ganging detection - and improved display - would be great, Laszlo. And... we know that Graphisoft has the technology for such intelligence now, because it exists in the MEP solution. So, perhaps there is hope. 🙂

Cheers,
Karl

Absolutely essential!

I was thinking about this today, still a good idea. Is there any hope for this feature?
