ArchiCAD 14 Reference Guide, page 645:

"Unlike the Section and Elevation tools, the Interior Elevation tool is used to create new viewpoints only; you cannot place a linked, reference-only IE marker."

WHY WHY WHY Graphisoft do you persist in delivering inconsistent, unfinished variations on the same tool???? :x :x

Did you not think anyone would EVER need to place an unlinked Interior Elevation marker? Section/Elevation/Detail/Worksheet can all do this ... why not the Interior Elevation tool?

do you actually have someone responsible for UI consistency? FFS .. its infuriating!

cheers,

owen

PS .. I trust this and the topic title conveys the wish clearly enough?

good catch Owen. This tool can be so infuriating.

sorry .. had to let of some steam.

Its just frustrating that we still need to place a 2D Interior Elevation object when all the other tools can now use the marker as a Source/Linked/Unlinked marker

someone at GS must have made the decision to not follow the functionality provided in all their other 'Drawing'-type tools .. can't see a reason from here

I voted essential for two reasons:

1. I just encountered the need to have a linked interior elevation marker and was surprised to find I couldn't do it.

2. I believe it is essential to have more consistency amongst related tools.

2019 - AC 23 and still not possible. C'mon GS, this seems to be a basic and easily fixed issue.

This is one of those issues I'm tired of making excuses for GS when asked by users. Just another workaround I have to teach.
