Working Plane in Section Viewport

Recommended Posts

I've created a section viewport of a multiple level building. I'm using the elevation benchmark tool in the annotation layer on the section viewport to denote floor elevations. I have the "Auto-Set Relative to Ref Elev" box checked. My question is how do I set the working plane so it locks unto one of the floor levels?

I'm not sure how the elevations are being derived by the elevation benchmark tool in the section viewport, but as I move the viewport around in the sheet layer the floor level elevations change. Is there a way to set the working plane in a section viewport, and be able to move the viewport around with the auto-set box checked while retaining elevation values? - Thanks

The safest thing is to set the levels manually so that you can't get caught out by this. Its okay to use the auto level capability until the time you overlook adjusting them because you have moved the drawn elements. Too much risk!
