I agree that these new tools are different from the workflow in R2010, but the new tools should simplify and automate most of the process done in the past and reduce dependency on the trial and error.
The answers are in the tutorials. I just copied there styles and setups and everything seemed to work with a little tweaking.
we need to plot sections reading from small station on bottom page to larger station to higher on the page. before was controlable now i can't figure out.
also how come the section is always flush against the view port? and the border offset can't be controlled? before there are offset controls
see attachment. the cyan is "sheet border" how come not at an offset from the viewport?

I’ve just learned about this somewhat automated feature to print section views, and I’m really excited about it!
Thanks for the advice about the “Production” setting but it seems that none of my templates work. I can’t find any that are specifically identified for sections and I think that might be the problem. My CAD in looking for this file:
C:\Users\a.b \appdata\local\autodesk\c3d 2012\enu\template\Plan Production\Civil 3D (Metric) Section.dwt
And I don’t have it. Is there somewhere that I can download it or is there a substitute I can use?
My last question is about custom title blocks. I have a standard title block in my office and I would like to be able to print my sections on it. Possible?

I found the easiest thing to do is create my own template with the right sheet size set in the layout and then setup a view port with the viewport type set to section within that layout. I had a problem getting the viewport type to stay as section, it kept changing back to undefined. To fix this problem set PROPERTYPREVIEW to off through the command line.
I had to do this since we use 11x17 (full size) sheets for our final production sets and none of the templates are set for that.
Hope that helps.
