Creating a section viewport (Vectorworks Fundamentals 2013)


I usually don't have problems with this except for this one drawing (a VW2015 file converted to VW2013). 
When I create a section view, only the parts where the cutting line passes through is shown in elevation. See attached screenshot.
I understand that it's supposed to show the back wall as well. I'm using a Japanese interface so I'd really appreciate it if you could include screenshots of where the commands are in the interface.

You'll first want to make sure that the Display Objects Beyond View Plane box is checked in the OIP. If that doesn't fix it, also check that the Depth Range setting under Advanced Properties is set to Infinite.

Vectorworks Fundamentals doesn't have Section Viewports.


Under the Model menu it has Cut 3D Section and Cut 2D Section.  These can be combined together on a Design Layer to create a section like view.   These are not live sections though and they will not update as you make further changes.
