Section an Assembly in Breakout but not Section

In the drawing view below, I want to section the green assembly only within the red section.  I've tried this with a breakout and it doesn't work.  There doesn't seem to be a way to exclude the green from the section and yet include it in the breakout.

 

Unless someone has found a way I'm not aware of.  Anybody?

Try a "Cropped View" for your Base View and Breakout it.

I'm sorry, but I don't understand what I'd be cropping or how it would help.

I wound up deleting the section and just doing a breakout with a very creative sketch (shown below in red).  It really shouldn't be that difficult.
