You can replicate this older behavior using the variable settings wizard to create a third process for the area where you wish for solid layers and set the solid diaphragm interval to every 1 layer(s).

That's a very, very messy way of getting a solid layer at a defined layer. A half way house between the functionality of versions 3.1.1 and 4.0 would be a much better solution!

What about this as a way forward....whenever the Variable Settings wizard is used to create multiple profiles, the number of top & bottom layers settings for the interface between profiles are zeroed out. And if a solid layer is then needed, the user can add either top or bottom layers back in at will!
Great suggestion, however theres also bottom and top solid layers in each of these processes that wouldn't be present at the exact process change area. If the top and bottoms are zeroed those other areas don't get proper fill. This was the issue with 3.1.1. 4.0.0 fixed this by allowing the solid layers in the transition area to get ignored but still produce solid fill on bottom and top areas within the process that didn't meet up exactly against the preceding or following process.
