Hi All,

We need a Surface tag which simply tags any visible Surface that the cursor is placed over in each view.

Currently tagging surfaces is very convoluted and limited, requiring unique tag settings for each element type and failing to work on SEO’s, complex profiles, library parts with multiple surfaces etc. The result is drawings which are liable to discrepancies, errors, and in the end we lose time, money, and create risk.

A great addition to this functionality would be the addition of ID’s to Surfaces.

Attached is a view to clarify current issues:

I am happy to say we took notice of this wish and I have added it to our Wish List database (please refer to it as DEF-4202). Hopefully, our Product Management team will adopt this one in the future.

Thank you all once more, and I wish you a great day!

Best regards,
