Hi all,

I'm using Revit 2013, trying to create CD's, and having lots of trouble with my section lines on my plans.

Some section lines are jogged, while others are straight, but when I add gaps using the little "Z" symbol in the middle of the section lines, it will only create a gap in the small jog portion. I drag those handles to their ends, but the rest of the full section lines remain. There are handles within those lines, but dragging those handles either does nothing at all or it will drastically change the line, sometimes causing it to disappear and just leave the end marks, or occassionally will bring the ends into the middle of my section line.

Any easy way to create more controlled breaks that just break the section line at the ends of my building? Thanks.

Someone has "healed" the break in the other areas and that is causing your problem.  The first time a split section is "gapped", there will be 3 gaps, one in each segment.  Once a segment is healed back together, I have found that it is very hard to drag it apart again but it can be done.  It may take several times but tab select the grip and drag it one way.  If that doesn't work, try it again dragging it the other way.  Sometimes all the splits will "heal" but clicking the split will bring back the ones you had so keep trying.

 

I wish I could say there is a better option but I have not found any.

Thank you, this helps. Upon trying to solve these, I've noticed that if one of the handles of the section gap is outside the crop view, it becomes very hard to work with. So I've had to temporarily open up my crop region, drag the outer handle into the crop region, then I can edit as necessary.

Thanks for your help.
