The convention, in South Africa at least (not too sure about the rest of the world), for showing new timber in section is with a cross from corner to corner. Any suggestions?

It can be done with complex profiles. And I know it has been discussed here before as I was part of one of the conversations. Try a search with complex profiles and top plates and/or studs.

While the default template delivered with AC (at least the US version) is not really designed for real work, it should at least illustrate some best practices with the out-of-box experience. Sadly, it doesn't, and so new users struggle, have to find tips and downloads here, have a supportive reseller who gives them a decent template, and/or get customized training.
I was reverse engineering the out of the box (US version) complex profile entitled : "FNDN Conc. 10" w/ Brick Ledge" and noticed that the mud sill is created with a single fill, but has the "X" in the timber. It took me a second to figure it out but after zooming in as far as ArchiCAD would let me I found that the "X" was actually a hole in the single fill. It will show in section.
