Horizontal Boundary

Too Long
Booster

Where is the setting that allows the Horizontal Boundary to be adjustable in the Section View?

For some reason they've worked fine until now.

 

Thanks

@Too Long Have you checked the section marker isn't on a locked layer in the view map settings for the section view?

Right mouse click in the section.

Thanks Barry but this is what Im referring to. Works fine in Template but its stopped working in a Project file.

So you can see the range, just can't adjust it.

Have you tried turning it off/on?

Is it the same for all sections and elevations in that file?

Thats the strange thing.

 

I can adjust it in elevation but not in section.

 

Can you drag the markers in plan?

That will change the width and maybe will reset something?

 

If you create a new section?

 

Check section settings (marker type, marker reference to, status of section view) - anything unusual there? - although that should not make any difference.

Ive actually tried all of that.

 

Even the new section does this.

 

Im at a total loss

@Too Long Just to cover all bases, if you mean the height range of the section then you can turn on stretchy vertical limits in the section settings. By default sections are full height, but if you wanted to trim the view down for live details then these vertical height limits can be adjusted.

YES! You did it, thank you very much.

It seems the designer locked this layer to reduce the number of selectable layers.

 

Thank you very much

It might be because it's from an Interior Elevation, which has a polygon boundary linking multiple - not just a single elevation. In this case the horizontal boundaries can't be adjusted inside the interior elevation. The polygon of the group needs to be adjust on floor plan.

@James B The icons in the view map match a Section View rather than an Interior Elevation.
