a better question is this - i want to be able to run the sections over and over again until i get the scaling and graph settings right, so how do i go about this? and where do i make changes in the scaling and such? sorry to be so clueless, have been going through tutorials, reading, watching videos and still lost
A trick I use is to pick one Section View (the grid and graph around the sections, not the sections themselves.)
Right click and pick Select similar. Press Delete.Only do this if you want to delete all section views in the drawing.
Run Create Multiple Section Views again.
On the Prospector tab of Toolspace, find your alignment and expand, then expand Sample Line Group and Section View Groups. Right click on your section view group and pick delete.

A typical project may have one file for the EG srf. Another for the FG surface/model and a third for the plotted sections. This third file references the EG and FG srf's (Data References). If the FG is revised all one has to do is open the section dwg and everything is updated automatically. Just review the label locations and save. No deleting views, no rerunning/resampling sections or replotting sections. This is one of C3D's major advantages over LDD IMO.
