I have never really liked the fact that the surface name is greyed out and you can actually see what is the ‘wrong’ surface.
But I know that it is then using the building material surface – but as David says you can’t see what this is.
It would be nice if it could show this or maybe not show anything at all until the override button is pressed.
Some people still don’t even realise that is an override button.
Yes, complex profiles complicate it even more as it could be the building material used for the fill (not to mention there could be more than one fill on that surface), an overridden edge surface of the fill or the actual override of the entire wall itself.
Which is why I think it should be blank until the override button is pressed, and then it shows just the override surface.
