Inventor section cut issues

I am trying to cut sections using Inventor  I will begin by saying I am a fairly new user. On numerous occasions I am running into an issue where the section cuts are not shown correctly, is there any advice on what the issue could be? I have attached an image showing an example of what I am talking about, you can clearly see that there are bolts and plates that should be displayed in the section cut which is shown above. Thanks in advance for your help!

Welcomer to the forum.

Once you have created your section view, RC on the view and select "Edit View"

Then under the "Display" select as shown below.

If you want what Scott has indicated to be permanent so as to always section Standard Content (that is items from the Content Centre) then turn this option on in the Application Options/Drawing tab.

That worked perfect for my drawing, which is what I am most concerned with. Thank you.

 

However, if you open the assembly itself, and section through the middle, the o-ring still appears whole, which is very curious. It's something we live with, but it just seems wrong.

My assy sections fine. It will be the Section All Parts in Application Options. See the bottom picture.
