Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.

No, there isn't a built-in way to map from a given LV to all of the PVs which use it (the LVs do not keep back pointers). Once your geometry is closed, you could write your own function (e.g., something you can trigger from a macro command) to iterate of the contents of the PV Store, and ask each PV for the pointer to it's LV.
The GAMOS experiment developed a rather nice set of tools to make inquiries into the geometry stores (PV, LV, and Solids) without having to create a G4Navigator or know the coordinate systems involved. You may want to contact the G4 collaborator Pedro Arce for more information.
