Section line instance needs to look different for more than one viewport

Recommended Posts



I'm used to using the section/elevation instances. However, I'm finding that for each viewport I need the instance to show up, they need to look slightly different. Whether it needs to be a smaller bubble, or no text, or less text. Is it possible to make section line instances have different graphic properties on different viewports, without changing every single instance for that viewport?


Is there a way to do this? or is one instance all instances at all times. No matter your needs.

I think one instance has to fit all however you could use the section line marker tool and link it back to the sections. They would auto number and you cld reshape / edit them however you want.

Thank you. 


I figured this would be the best option. I was just hopeful that the tool would think of everything!
