Why is there a building material that appears on the label skin list and not on the complex profile

The above building material does not appear. It was created as a new profile in Profile Manager

 

The following is created by creating it as a Duplicate profile, erasing all the fills except one and modifying one fill.

Oh! Both are walls.
Even if you copy the wall fill with the reference to the new profile to Ctrl+C, V
Building Material appears.

Why is it?

 

 

Do you need another setting?

Thank you for your advice.

Because your advice.
Once you set the global Floor Plan Cut Plane, you can further fine-tune the Floor Plan display of individual construction elements (Walls, Columns, Beams and Roofs only) in their element Settings dialog boxes.
I understand the meaning of this sentence.

With complex profile walls the skin list label will show only the skins that are cut by the Floor Plan Cutting Plane.

You wall must be above or below this cutting plane height.

I think I misunderstood, so I ask the question again.
Can I specify the cut plane height for each wall etc?
Like Revit's plan region...

You can't set a cutting plane height for each wall.

It is set per plan view.

So the entire plan will have the same Floor Plan Cut Plane height.

But you can have separate views with different heights.

=> what does it mean?
     Do you mean to create each view?

The Project Map has the storey 'view points'.

There is only one 'view point' for each storey.

If you are looking at a 'view point' from the Project Map, then you manually make all the settings as you want to see it on screen (layers, scale, floor plan cut plane height, graphic override, etc.).

 

You can save these as 'views' in the View Map.

You can have as many 'views' as you want for each storey (section, elevation, etc.), and each of these 'views' can have completely different settings (layers, scale, floor plan cut plane height, graphic override, etc.).

When you use a 'view' from the View Map, you do not have to change any settings, because they are all stored with the 'view'.

It is these 'views' that you place on your layouts.

Can't skin list of complex profiled wall be used in cross section?

Below is a complex profiled wall.

It will only list the skins of composites that are cut by the Floor Plan Cutting Plane.

I guess I should hope for a skin list by section so I don't have to manually text/autotext.

thank you
