  1. I just made the mistake, against my better judgment, of setting up a project with different layer z values for different stories. What a mess it makes of my work process - and all because of one crucial, missing bit of functionality. Let me give an example: I have maybe 100 surveying stake objects from a survey on a steeply sloping site. I can't look at these objects from the side and tell which is which (labels from side view wish?). So I copy a particular locus, and paste-in-place on the appropriate layer to see if my measured floor finish corresponds accurately to the floor level of a particular story in this 4-story structure. Guess what - because of layer z values, that object does not paste in at the correct height. It pastes in with respect to the layer z value of the layer I am working in, not the z value relative to "world z". If we could have the option to paste in place relative to world z, that would be a great help and I could use the "story" structure that VW promotes as a major feature. I use paste in place across layers very frequently, maybe a dozen times a day for various purposes. I would post this in the Wish List forum, but I don't see that in forum navigation - does it no longer exist?
