Retrieve Missing Section Pattern?

118 Views, 4 Replies

I have a section view in which the section lines are MIA.

Is there a way to retrieve them?  So I can change the scale?

This might be a long shot, but did you use the content center to create that channel?  If so, it might not be sectioning the channel because it is a "standard" part.  Depending on your document settings and / or drawing view standards, standard parts may not automatically participate in section views.

 

If this is the case, no hatching would show up.  Try editing the drawing view > Display Options tab > Section Standard Parts > change to "Always".  If what I described above is true, then you will suddenly have hatching in your view.

Try editing the view (either by double clicking on the view, or right clicking the view and selecting edit).

Go to the Display Options tab and ensure that the HATCHING box is checked.

Ding, ding, ding!!!

 

After you posted this I felt like I just had a duh moment.  I realiezed that I have experienced this before, but forgot at the moment that these were CC parts.  You were right.  As soon as I selected "Always my hatching appeared.

Thanks
