Q - question

How to move (flatten) entities with varying Z-coordinates to Z=0?

A - answer Add a new macro (icon) to your toolbar - in fact two single-line macros (tool buttons) - one for selected objects and the second for all objects:
[FlattenSel]^C^C_UCS;;_select \_move _p;;0,0,1e99;;_move _p;;0,0,-1e99;;

[FlattenAll]^C^C_UCS;;_move _all;;0,0,1e99;;_move _all;;0,0,-1e99;;
(keep the macro text on a single line; the displayed format is to be used for old MNU/MNS files - if you add the macro through the new CUI dialog, use just its code starting with ^C)

Do not use it on 3D solids as it may distort them.

(original concept by Randy Richardson)
