Auto scale Z

The auto scale Z function resets the current view port along the z-axis and re-scales all objects enclosed in a way, that the maximum z-axis range of all objects enclosed is visible again. All other axes remain unchanged. Whenever the user wants to see the full data range along the z-axis of all objects, e.g. after he has zoomed into a particular data objects area to see details, he might apply this function.

The auto scale Z function is applied to all available data objects in the current active data view. So the view port is re-scaled to show the complete z-axis of all data objects.
