Sections on showing in view map

Hi

I'm new to Archicad and having an issue that I cant seen to create sections. Not sure where I'm going wrong, have watched a few training videos on setting up sections and don't seem to be able to find  online information to put me on the right path.

When using the section tool a lot of the setting options are grey out and can be changed.

I have gone through and add a section to the floor plan but there does seem to be a view of of anywhere.

A file appears in the Project Map labelled independent but with no section image and nothing in the view map.

Just under "Name" where is says "Place a linked marker", change that to "Create a new section viewpoint".

Otherwise it will want to link that to another viewpoint or drawing by using the 'Browse' button next to ... 'with marker reference to'.
