I would appreciate having the following Trace View options to help trouble shoot why objects just vanish sometimes:

SHOW TRACE VIEW OF OBJECTS HIDDEN BY CURRENT MODEL VIEW
SHOW TRACE VIEW OF OBJECTS HIDDEN BY CURRENT RENOVATION FILTER
SHOW TRACE VIEW OF OBJECTS HIDDEN BY CURRENT CUT PLANE SETTINGS
SHOW TRACE VIEW OF OBJECTS HIDDEN BY CURRENT LAYER SETTINGS
SHOW TRACE VIEW OF OBJECTS HIDDEN BY THEIR STORY SETTINGS
SHOW TRACE VIEW OF OBJECTS HIDDEN BY THEIR RENOVATION SETTINGS

That last one is different from the other renovation view, because objects can have individual settings to only show up on certain renovation filters. To be able to filter out 2D stuff and images, etc, like the Trace View already does, would speed things along.[/list]

Could you post some real-world examples of cases where you think this would be a solution.
Except for the Story settings, all these settings are saved with Views, so if you save a View an use that View as Trace Reference then you might have something that does what you need.

I think a lot of that can be done by creating a new view to show what you need in each situation, and using that created view as the trace reference.
