I have created a plan call-out which is also the window jamb detail. I want to reference that plan call-out on the window type elevations as a section detail but can't seem to figure it out.  First I can't get a section to show w/ a horizontal cut and when I use the reference to pick a an already shown detail, there are not plan details (floor plan) to pick from.  Anyone know how to do this?

Start your section command then select reference other view checkbox from your options bar and select your detail.  Now place your section symbol.

That is exactly what I have done but first I am trying to add a section reference to the window elevation (was created as a section w/ the window in elevation) which is really a plan view (jamb section of the window) and you can not choose a plan detail from the drop down list and also the section reference will not work horizontally on an elevation.  It appears the main problem is trying to cut a horizontal section (really a plan view) other than a call-out view on the plan.  Am I missing something here?????

????  Your sentence structure is hard to follow.

 

I can create a detail view from a plan detail.   I then can choose "reference other view" from a section (detail view) and place it as a horizontal detail section.   I believe that is what you say you can't do.  THIS IS NOT A WALL SECTION!  Wall sections are vertical.

Terminology may be a problem.  The plan detail I have created from a floor plan as a call-out is a "floor plan" detail or horizontal section.  In the browser it is "Floor Plan: Plan detail......"  When I try to place a horizontal section on my window elevation and reference another detail, the "Floor Plan:....." details do not show up in the drop down.  There are only "Section:...." and "Drafting View:....." details in the drop down.  You say you place it as a horizontal detail section, how is that done?  I used the section icon on both the basics menu and the view menu and it will not let me place it horizontal.  What am I missing???  Sorry if this is still confusing, it is a little confusing to me also  Thanks for the help!!!

When you click on section, look in the first drop down in the options bar.  You have three choices, building section, wall section and detail view.  You want detail view.  The default symbol is not an typical wall/building section head but a detail head.  The section tail is different too from a wall section.  If you have created a detail view , you can reference that.

 

NOTE:  When you created the callouts on your plan view, did you also choose the correct item from the drop-down there.  You have two choices - detail view and Floor Plan.  If you have chosen incorrectly, you should be able to fix it.  Just create the correct type the copy paste all your 2d and annotations from the plan to the detail view.

BINGO!!!!!  That answers the question.  I needed to create a detail call-out instead of a floor plan call-out.  Now I got it.

 

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Excuse me guys, What does ''Sim'' mean? It appears at the right corner of my ''reference detail view'' mark?

I have the same problem as trhymans but I do not want to use a detail view because I want to create a plan section through a railing that is below the cut plane of the floor it is on.  So I choose floor plan for the callout type and then I'm able to change the "View Range" to the height I want.  The problem is that my railing does not show up in this floor plan callout because the cut plane is now below the top of the railing.  I do not understand why Autodesk thought this would be a good feature for railings to not show when the cut plane is below the top of it.

(Sorry i hit submit before finishing)  So now the problem is that I cannot create a reference section tag on the elevation of the railing to this floor plan callout because it is not available in the drop down list.

Maybe you should add a plan region around your railing.

Thanks.  But the plan region does not seem to change the way the railing looks in a floor plan.

In your plan region, did you specify the top and bottom of the view.  That does not have to match the sheet's properties....

The plan region needs to be on your plan view you are calling out from, not the detail.
