Added contextual tips in the Split & Place dialog as a reminder that more than one sheet is required for splitting schedules across sheets.

Section/Elevation

Improved performance when selecting or editing a very complex model element. For example, previously it took around 8 minutes to select the floor element, now it takes 0.3 seconds.

Improved the performance when there is large number of views, for example: First time opening a plan view or changing the detail level of the view containing about 10,000 section views, previously it took around 5 minutes, now it takes 1.5 minutes.

Selection

Added the ability to select all instances in the current view or in the entire model when multiple objects are chosen.

User Interface

Improved the response time when creating a new section or schedule view, or clicking the "reference other view" checkbox when there is large number of section views in a model. For example, when clicking the View - Create - Schedule button, previously it took 2.5 minutes to open the dialog, now it takes 1.5 seconds.

Workplane

Fixed an issue where the work plane wasn't shown in the workplane viewer.

Enhanced the Work Plane Viewer display status to automatically zoom to fit after opening it.
