Section View depth

When I try to edit the section view depth my only choice is full. The depth is grayed. Is there a setting to turn on to allow this operation?

right click on view, edit section properties.

Are you selecing "Distance" from the first drop-down list? -- Andrew Faix Product Designer - Inventor Drawing Manager Autodesk "cdyck" wrote in message news:24823401.1107360414035.JavaMail.jive@jiveforum1.autodesk.com... > When I try to edit the section view depth my only choice is full.

When I pick the dropdown box that says "FULL" I am not offered any other choice.

I can't think of any condition that would prevent you from doing this? Is this problem file-specific? Please try creating a new drawing and placing a base view of a different model, create a section view and see if the problem persists. If this is file-specific, please post or send me the dataset (model and drawing). andrew.faix@autodesk.com Thanks, -- Andrew Faix Product Designer - Inventor Drawing Manager Autodesk "cdyck" wrote in message news:28970542.1107372956343.JavaMail.jive@jiveforum2.autodesk.com... > When I pick the dropdown box that says "FULL" I am not offered any other > choice.

I checked to see if this problem is file specific or project specific. It is neither, it doesn't offer me the option for depth .
By the way I am using Inventor 9 Pro. but this project is not using the Pro icon, so I am assuming it is normal Inventor 9.

Well, you can send me the file and I can check it, but it seems that this problem is local to your machine. Again, there should be no condition that would prevent you from changing from a full section to a user-defined depth. -- Andrew Faix Product Designer - Inventor Drawing Manager Autodesk "cdyck" wrote in message news:4661559.1107447629610.JavaMail.jive@jiveforum2.autodesk.com... >I checked to see if this problem is file specific or project specific.
