I've used the railings and sweep tool to create a chair-rail and base moulding in the corridors of a project i'm working on. The problem i'm having is that in section view where these objects wrap corners the wall line continues as if the railing is transparent. However in interior elevation views this is not the case. I've tried applying the view template used in interior elevations to the section but it doesn't change anything, I've applied a material to these railings that is solid, I've checked all visibility and property settings I can think of. I've attached a pdf file of what i'm experiencing. The image on the right is the elevation view and the section view of the same area is on the left. Thanks for any help.

Sorry but the image you include doesn't help me understand your question.  Please clarify it.

If you look at the image on the left (a section cut) you can see lines going through the chair rail and base molding. The image on the right is looking at the same area in my project but is an interior elevation but you can notice the lines dont show through the base moulding or chair rail. The image on the right is how it should look because that is a pilaster and the mouldings are wrapping around the outside corners.  As stated in my first question I've tried many things to try and correct it but have run out of ideas and thought I'd post it here.

Check your view settings for transparancy.  Make sure it is not wireframe too. 

 

I never see this kind of problem so I am pretty sure it is a settings error.

I am just curious. is this "condition" stay the same when you "print" it?

or is this just showing up like that on screen?

I have seen many times where things don't look right on screen but it comes out fine on the print (or pdf)

Well, what I ended up doing was just cutting a new section and copying all my text, dimensions, detail items and what not over. The new section cut displayed properly and so do other sections in my project. Although I do not have any clue what was wrong with this particular view it may have something to do with it being a central file and then being resaved as a different central file and possibly being corrupt.

if you look at my original post, i've attached a pdf, and that showed it printed that way. But i think it was just that particular view and i've deleted now.
