When to Use Screen Plane, Layer Plane, or Working Plane

One of my clients was watching the screen plane movie from Steve Scaysbrook and had a question.

“The movie suggests working only in layer plane mode. Is there ever a situation where it is advantageous to work in screen plane mode?”

It is a good question about when to use layer plane or screen plane.

I believe that you need to know what the different planes are for. You need to know when one plane is better for you than another. I do not believe that you can work effectively in Vectorworks and use a rule like “Always use Screen plane.”
