One elevation of the building I'm working with has a wall that is jogged by about 80 feet. There is a good amount of varying topography on the site so I need the views crop region to stay fairly close to the wall, and jog with it if possible. I have not been able to find a way to do this with a standard elevation view, so I started using a section cut, which is seemingly easier to split and jog with the wall. So I have 2 questions:

1. Is it possible to jog an elevation view's crop boundary?

2. How do you eliminate the entire line of the section cut, leaving just the head symbol, so I am able to use the section symbol to mimic a typical elevation symbol?

Can't jog the crop boundry.  That's why I probably would have used multiple elevations and placed them side by side on the sheet.

DONT KNOW HOW TO JOG A ELEVATION,

TO MAKE A SECTION MARK WITH NO LINE YOU WOULD HAVE TO MAKE A CUSTOM ANNOTATION FAMILY FOR THE SECTION WITH A INVISIBLE LINE. OR TRY TO PUT THE LINE ON A YES NO PARAMETER.

2538ssh,

You can click on one end of the section marker till it turns off, then select the end of the section marker line and drag it towards the remaining section marker.

I suggest that you leave a small section of the line visible as it makes it easier to select the section.

We do this quiet regularly as we can modify te section head but not the elevation head.
