when you have 2 or more corridors it will ask you to click on the corridor which will bring you to the station you clicked. however when there is one corridor it will go to station 0. then if you don't know what station you want to see then you need to close it first then turn on the station then go back to station 0 and go to that station.


should just always ask user to click. or at least have an option for that.

You're picking the View/Edit Sections command and then picking the corridor?


When it delivers you to station 0+00, look on the ribbon. To the right of where it shows the current station, there is a button whose tooltip says Specify station in plan or profile view. Pick that and then you can pick the station from plan or profile.




Pick the corridor by selecting one of its links. Pick View/Edit Sections from the Ribbon. The section will be the station you selected.




from the Section Editor tab of the Ribbon, View Tools panel, select Edit the viewport configuration options and turn on at least two viewports. OK the dialog. One the same panel, select View/Edit Corridor Section Options. Be sure Section Slider in Multiple Viewports is Yes. Now, when you enter the section editor, the plan and profile views will have a line that represents the currently displayed section in the section viewport. You can click in either plan or profile and slide that line to specify which section you want to see.
