I have a plan view where I want to show the door openings but I want the section view w/ the doors closed.  I can't seem to get inventor to do this.  Does anyone know a way?

You could place a second parent view "off the page" with the alternate representation to create the section view.


To add in the section line in the "wrong" parent view, highlight that view and create a sketch, then draw the section line, labels and arrows as necessary.  Alternately, highlight all lines in the second parent view that differ from the first, section as desired, then overlay the second over the first.
