So my next question is, how do I make these settings my default so when I create a new section it always creates it with these view settings as currently I need to repeat the above process for all newly created sections?
Manually set all of the tool settings before you use it (same for any tool you use).
Or as mentioned in one of your other posts, ALT click an existing elevation/section line to set the default settings for the tool.
Once you have those default settings, save them as a favourite.
This way you can save many favourites with slightly different settings, should you need some variations.
You can also CTRL+ALT click (inject) your default settings into any existing Section/elevation line instead of using the 'get current windows settings' method you mentioned.
