as I pick I do see that choice, I have also now in properties made the choice display the layer name, wish I had done that yrs ago, unless it wasnt in V4,…but the lines are all on the same layer, I have just projected them to port and stbd surfaces in ortho view with delete input chosen. I am working on port side of aircraft in Front view (staring ai its port side in other words) and have port layer ticked, so it shows me the exact same name and I wish to select the stbd line and place it onto the stbd layer which is turned off, then I can work on the port line.
if that option was also to display the Z distance that might be useful !
I have to keep hopping out of Front view, zooming in on the just created yellow lines and selecting the stbd one, right click layer and choose Change Object Layer then return to Front view.
I am doing this hundreds of times, sleep is something I am lucky to get a chance of.
