    Default Add classification to location property

    Summary: Make it possible to filter on classification on space for location property

    Description: We want to be able to filter on classification on space for location property.

    We are using Architecture to plan store layouts.
    Different CAD spaces are used to keep track of different areas. There are multiple spaces on same elevation.
    Mv-blocks are used as interior symbols.
    We need know on which space a symbol is placed on. Today this is a manual job, to keep track of which space a symbol belongs to.
    We want to use location property for this. Unfortunately location property can't be used when having multiple spaces on same elevation. Location property just returns first space found.

    To be able to use location property, it must be possible to filter on classification on space.

    Could you describe this a bit? Particularly the multiple spaces per elevation. Spaces can't overlap one another can they? I would think you'd be tagging fixtures in a plan view where a fixture would occupy only one space. There is a location property isn't there?

    A cad space has both floor and ceiling information.
    Our problem is that we can't use that.
    Our floor and ceiling areas are not corresponding with each other.
    We need to draw a separate floor space and ceiling space.
    We are also having other spaces to keep track of other areas.
    It would be really great to know which cad space a symbol is placed on.
    We can then start to use generic products. If a light symbol gets the location property from the ceiling, a specific product for that ceiling can be bought.

    I know this can be done by placing the different cad spaces on different elevations.
    Problem is that we can't rely on that our users are placing each space on the correct elevation.
    If it should be possible filter on classification, we can set up the location property for a light symbol to only look for spaces classified as ceiling.

    We are having other type of symbols than just light symbols that need to get information from other spaces.

    It is not possible to work with xref's because the location property will find spaces in the xref.
