This is a wish for an override for imported plane attributes to match the preferences of the main file:


  • main file document preferences set up to 'screen plane only' - (or whichever)
  • import the selected items from other file into main file
  • vwx detects that 'objects being imported into current file have plane different to document preferences'
  • question then is asked - 'would you like to change their plane to match current preferences?' - select yes or no, imported object planes are amended
  • BOOM! - No more imported objects in different planes


This would have to include groups, symbols, lines, poylines etc


Don't see how this is any different from when you import textures or symbols that are the same - it always comes up with a warning symbol like the above.
