Viewport Section Marker Length

Recommended Posts

I have changed the section marker "configuration" to "partial section", but all this seems to do is remove the marker from one end. I need to create a section with limited length (say only 6m)

In the Create Section Viewport dialog box, when you create your section find "Advanced Section Properties" where you'll be able to limit your section's length

Ah ha, um what if you already have several cross sections drawn and need to shrink them with out cropping?

OIP:Advanced Properties Button

Extent Tab

Length Range Limited By Section Line Length

Shorten the section line on the Design Layer to only extend to the part you want to show.

I want to show the marker with a line extending only a short way out from the marker. I dont want to see a "gapped line" or a solid line through my plan. Is this possible?

In the OIP, pick Partial Section, then in your drawing you can adjust the line length to whatever you need

Yeah but if I need the partial section to go 5m through my building I then have a black line 5m long over my plan.

I need the partial section refernce to be 5m long but the line from the marker that the builder will see only needs to be long enough to indicate the direction of the section maybe 1m long or something. Hope that makes sense.

For example if you were doing a full section with markers each end you dont want a black line right acros your plan thats why you have a gapped line option, but this is of no use with a partial section you dont need to how the end of the section length.

You will have to fake that manually.

Either put the "real" (the one linked to the section viewport) into a class you can make invisible, or use the Section Line Instances dialog from the Viewport OIP to make the marker invisible.

Use the section marker tool to put in a "dummy" marker that has the visual appearance that you want.
