Enter Perimeter length in Properties

Hello,

Would it be possible to implement a feature to enter the length of a Perimeter line in the properties pane, just like with the Distance Tool?

Eg. 'Completed drawings 08.06'.2020. If the document is saved one more time, it returns the .pdf -file...

Slow rendering of isometric views from Revit

Hello,

A lot of construction drawings nowadays feature added 3D-isometrics from Revit.

This is really neat, but it does slow the Editor down significantly when zooming in or out.

Is there any way to remedy this?
