Does anyone know if there is a way to apply a scope box to a section view yet, have the section retain the “far clip offset” of your section? Much like a plan still respects the view range that you have set if you apply a scope box to a plan view?

I am trying to apply the extents of a scope box to multiple sections so they share the same extents on sheets.

It seems that plan view can have a scope box and still respect view range settings (i.e. not look all the way to the bottom of the scope box by default) 

It seems that sections can only look all the way to the end of the scope box (i.e. not respect far clip offset values) 

Is there any way to control section view range using scope boxes? apply extents of the scope box in one plane but not both? (Just like plan views work with scope boxes)

Thanks for any input

if I understand you correctily....then like the plan view section views also have grips to extend or shorten the view "scope". Just make sure the crop region is clicked to show, zoom out, and touch the border and adjust. Also, you can grab the little squiggley line and break the secvtions for better detailing.

Use view templates.  You can contol the far clip offset.

I found a solution that satisfied my requirements for a series of sections with the same direction and extents, but different origins and clipping planes:

1. draw scope box with extents from origin of first section to far clip of last section

2. draw first section at one end of the scope box.

3. copy the section up/down/left/right as required to create series of sections

4. in each section, set scope box to previously made scope box, click apply, THEN RESET SCOPE BOX TO NONE

5. manipulate far clip of each section without affecting view orientation/size.
