Overlapping objects to show solid in section and clip cube

Question

Right now - if there is overlapping geometry - it shows as void in section - like the two objects are canceling each other out.   It would be MUCH better if it showed as solid, as this requires inch perfect modeling to get your section to look correct.  While as if it showed as solid - it would be soooo much more tolerant of slight overlapping between walls and floors ect.

Agreed. The current functionality always seemed like a bug to me. I would love for it to just be solid.

 

Or, if there are people who prefer the current functionality, it could be a user preference.

I almost submitted it as a bug, because I could not understand the use case where anybody would want it the way it is now.

I think it should be solid too. I have gotten used to it, to some degree, but I find the voids visually confusing. It looks like there is nothing there, not two things sharing the same space.
