move symbol in wall / position panel interface


1. To make the VW interface even easier and more consistent, when a Symbol in Wall is selected the move command (CTRL+M) should bring up not the standard Move Panel, but the Position Panel that can be found at the OIP.

2. The Position Panel could afford a face-lift...

How about a nicer graphic scheme, or some on drawing green highlights like the parametric constraint editon panel tricks? How about choosing different points at the symbol to measure the insertion distance (jamb face, center or original insertion point like the symbol insertion tool)?

It is a pain in the butt having to reposition plug in doors and windows relative to the centre of them.

I understand the logic of why this is so but surely the PIO could return the object width to the position dialogue so that its position could be set to an edge.

Better still would be a graphic dialog box which showed the object width and the dimensions in each direction to the ends of the walls (with the option of selecting inside - centre - outside) with the capability to change all of the dimensions as required with the objects location and/or width adjusting accordingly.
