I want to view the Sketch Properties (xyz-values) without starting an edit session

Idea created by even4321 on Feb 11, 2013
    To view the z-values for points, polylines and polygons, I have to start an editing session, click on the desired object, click edit vertices and finally click sketch properties to view the z-values. This is a too rigid way to view (not edit) the z-values. Sometimes I don't even have the edit permissions, or a file is locked, and I can't view these values. I'd like to have a button simular to Edit Sketch Properties available without starting an edit-session, called View Sketch Properties, which looks like the Edit Sketch Properties window without the possibility to change anyting.
