Create Section Viewports in Custom Views

Question

When creating a section of a SLVP, "the viewport you are sectioning must be in one of the following views: top/plan, top, bottom, right, left, front, or back."

In the attached Sheet Layer drawing, Flat A is in front view and can be sectioned. But the other two flats are at odd angles in the design layer. The only way I can section these SLVPs is to make them into symbols, put a copy of the symbol on another design layer, rotate the symbol to the x or y plane, and create a SLVP from the rotated symbol.

I guess in some occupations, every object lines up neatly on the x or y axis, but I have objects all over the place.

So my wish is that I can section a SLVP that is in any view.

Perhaps I'm not understanding correctly. Why don't you just establish a Section Viewport from a Design Layer? That way you can cut your section at any angle. This is how we show Elevations of building elevations that are not at 90º. As I say I may not fully understand your issue.

James,

I find the easiest way to do what you want is to create a dummy SLVP in plan view outside the page boundary. Then its easy to create the sections you want.
