Red "Infinity-like Symbol" Appearing on Section Marker 

Recommended Posts

I've attached an image of this red symbol that's been appearing in recent days on my section makers. I don't think it's Landmark-specific, but that's what I'm working in today.

That mark indicates that the Section Marker is not linked to a Viewport. Unfortunately, there is no way to turn it off. Yet.

 

I don't think that the mark exports to PDF or Prints.

How to get section markers to link to viewports?  With the Detail-Callout Marker there is clearly a way to do in Object Info Pallette.  Do Section Markers have the same function in 2020?

If you have a Section Line that's not linked to a viewport, you can create a viewport from it using the 'Create Section Viewport...' button in the O.I.P. or by right-clicking on the section line.

 

If you have an existing Section Viewport + you want to place an additional Section Line for it somewhere, you can go to 'Section Line Instances...' in the O.I.P. + choose the viewport you want to add the Section Line to.

 

But you're describing a scenario where you have a standard viewport - say an exterior elevation - and you have drawn a section line for it manually after the fact + want to link the two, then no I don't see a way to do that. Better to draw the section line first then create the viewport from it or create the viewport using the View>Create Section Viewport... command in the first place.
