update z height on linked layers


I'm building architectural models, and find the z height of layers a fabulous way to keep things neat and organized. Yet when I create a link layer to view all the layers together, that link layer doesn't update z height corrections. I find myself having to remove everything from the layer I want to reset a z height to, creating a new layer with the correct z height, and then creating a new layer link. Unless I'm doing something wrong (strong possiblity!) this seems like a really cumbersome way of working.

Grant, I'm not certain (and probably the NNA guys will comment on Tuesday) but I think that once you create a Linked Layer, all of the Z values of the layers contained within the link are "frozen". So if in fact you need to change a Z value in the original layers you do need to go back and re-link. PLC
