layer pallet

I also think VectorWorks could be improved with a layer (class) palette like Illustrator's. I love how Illustrator highlights the layer of picked objects. And, changing an objects layer is just a matter of dragging and dropping the highlighted square within the palette.

As a long-time form-Z user, I like their layer palette because you can organize layers into groups. So, you might have a group called "doors", and within that group, you might have sublayers called "leaf", "swing", "jamb", etc. That way you can easily control the behavior of all layers in a group, or each sublayer individually.

The bottom line is that I think VW needs to improve how picked objects are displayed. Ideally, object highlighting should be implemented, but layer highlighting could also help me overcome my frustration with VW's pointless "8-handled" selection indication.
