Factory assets should have an attribute that allows the asset creator to specify what the default layer the asset should be assigned to when it is placed in a drawing. The benefit of this feature is time savings and repeatabiliyt of workflow.
This requirement was gathered at the customer roundtable in Milan, Oct 2012.
IF I am not snapping to a DWG or to a grid - I ALWAYS want to move my asset immediately after placement. I have to go and select reposition. Why not just have the reposition triad be the placement triad?
