For some reason i cannot see my section box, it still functions per se, but I CANNOT PHYSICALLY SEE IT. Has anyone encountered this? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

unchecking and rechecking the box has a good chance of bringing it back.

Have you been overriding objects in view, by element lately?  You might have inadvertently had the section box selected, and set it to invisible?  You could hit the lightbulb at the bottom of the view to reveal hidden objects, and see if it's there. 

 

Otherwise, you could go to the view tab and create a new default 3D view, and check if the section box is working in a fresh non-duplicated view. 

 

Another possibility is that your section box was reset, and the extents of your project are much larger than you realize... through imported objects, or mistakenly moving an object a mile.. eh... but by the viewcube, hit the home button, or zoom to fit.  This should reset your view to show the extents, and hopefully your section box.  reinstalling would be a pain, and the problem probably rests with your file in some way, anyway.

Thank you for continuing to reply, its seems somehow it was hidden as an individual object, i fixed it now. That was my fault sorry.

 

Thanks Again ,
