Archicad 17 Error "Section/Elevation Could Not Be Completed"

Hi!

We're currently working on a teamwork model in AC17 and need to do a couple of sketch options of a space. To do this, we've saved a solo pln version of the model so that we can explore the options without affecting the main model.

Problems seemed to have cropped up in the pln saved out though. One curious one is that new sections can no longer be cut - doing so will result in an error pop message coming up saying "Section/Elevation could not be completed".

I'm baffled. Has anybody come across this before?

Never encountered such a thing, and i've done a lot of teamwork->solo pln.
What about the existing sections.

Thanks Ilder.

We've done a lot of teamwork to pln saves too and this is the first time it's happened. Existing sections seem to be fine so it's just the new ones that seem to have this problem.

We've tried re-saving pln files from the same model a few more times to see if the problem appears with these attempts (never mind what they say about madness being doing the same thing again and again, expecting different results). Curiously, the problem replicates itself in all of these attempts except in the 4th and final pln we saved.

Now after saving the model out 4 times, we have one that works. Weird..
