Section Viewport Mirroring Problem

Recommended Posts

Hello hello! Here I am again, testing VW capacities... so this is my issue and I would really appreciate any help if possible!


I have cut a section, limited by the section line and on the sheet layer, I want to mirror the viewport. However, when I do it it goes crazy and the open gl mirrors but the section line doesnt. See the attached! Any help fixing this would be ideal. I am trying to put together a composite unfolded section.


And yes, before you ask, I have updated the section after mirroring.


Thanks again! 😄

Would duplicating the section and then reversing the direction of the duplicate not achieve what you want?

Hi, yes it would achieve the right section line but it would show the info of the wrong direction in the background. Does that make sense?

Hi Olivier,


The only workaround I've found is to create the section viewport as normal, convert it to a group, and then start mirroring.  Obviously you lose the viewport link, but it works as a brute force method.

I've had issues even rotating section VPs 90° - so there's something buggy in general.
