Section uniform cut pen

I cant for the life of me find how you define the pen color for uniform cut pen in section, help!

 

UPDATE: I loaded a different project and when selecting the Uniform Cut Pen option, a section opens up with the pen choices. However on my original project file this pen choice does not become visible, nothing happens, why would that be???

I’m not sure but you may choose no graphic overrides option, it may affect your cut settings.

thanks, yes I tried various graphic overide options, didnt make any difference. It's strange because Im obviously usong the same version of AC to open both projects. And in one project the pen options do not open up. Is this a bug or a feature?

I saw this as well in a migrated file. make sure the section marker is loaded properly. Also, makes sure you are not working from an old work environment. The cut/uncut appearances were changed in 25, and I suspect if you are using a work environment from an earlier version of AC, some of the settings here may be missing. Lastly, try changing the cut fill settings. I can not get any of the cut fill settings to hide that parameter, but that's not to say that the pen setting isn't being hidden due to a work environment glitch.

Good suggestions, I didn't think about work environment, its true that my AC set up is  a bit of a  Frankenstein...

 

Im wondering how I can reset my WE to 25 standards...

You were right, it was the legacy sections from previous project/AC versions. I created a new section and it works now ,thanks.

FWIW I'm having the same trouble with a legacy project.
