Hi all,

This wish is the ability to override surfaces via the Surface Catalogue. At the moment, if you use Graphic Overrides, it will search for model elements that meet the requirements specified by the rules set. Why not instead have it simply have it override the Surface Catalogue directly regardless of model elements.

ie. If model element requests Surface A use Surface B.

You could do it with the surface painter tool.
Or you could create an alternate attribute with the same index number and swap it out with the Attribute Manager.

This would be permanent though (unless you do the same in reverse).
Unlike the GO which you can have multiple options and just swap when ever you want.
