Feature request for V7 - Be able to SetObjectDisplayMode for linked blocks

They work correctly when you change the display mode for the whole viewport… so I can’t imagine this is a major technical hurdle.

I have a bunch of mesh human figures that I use for scale and proportion but they look garbage in wireframe and shaded. Would like them to be rendered mode with their bitmaps without having to import them into the file as individual objects and leave all their materials behind to clean up when deleting.

I believe some work has been done for V7.
Have you tried it there?
I know it’s not fully complete but it may be better.
