It will not be possible to have Markers as part of the main drop list. It will be too confusing.

However, some more advanced User data will be nice:
- Use the new Numeric> Selector Type
- Boolean checkbox option
- Limits/Default Value that can be set in Base Object>Customize

Imagin plug several types of lamps/benches/signs etc defined by markers. I have several styles like this but sometimes it takes some time to find proper one.

Sorry.
Yes, In the Marker's User rollout this could be done and very useful (I`ve understood you are referring to Showing Markers Data in the Generators Main Parameter rollout).

That was my request from the time Markers were introduced.
Now we could achieve it with Numeric> Selector Type. Just wait to be incorporated.

Thanks for this suggestion. I can certainly see how it'd be useful. This one is already on our list so I'll add your vote.

Cheers!
