Ortho Creation NEEDS!!!

we absolutely have to have layer control when in the Ortho Cube. as of now (2014 Ext2) if you turn a layer off while in ortho cube it still shows up when creating the new view. you can turn layers on/off here but it is not functional as it leaves a "cut out" or will not reveal an object underneath it.


futhermore you have to go into every single model you are referencing and adjust layer control, cut ortho dwgs, go back to references and restore layers. time consuming and annoying.


the ortho generator has come a long way but this is a major issue for us.

Ortho creating is painfull in plant 3d and take log time unfortunatly. If you want to make change in model, you have to remember many things (which list you must upgrade and we can't just click upgrade all list - becouse we don't have layer control). Layer control it will be SUPER and AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!
