Hi, I have a building project in which i have to copy same building sections for mulitiple uses, one use of a building section is to show color schemes to differentiate building zonning arrangements, the same section has to be used as a working section, the copy of the same section has to be used on the submission drawing to the building regulation authority. While all are the copies of the same section view, each one has to show different information, my problem is that now i have multiple Section Marks on my layout plans. I have to manually select the zonning section and the building authority section and hide it in that particular view.Is there a way to do it in an other more automated way?

I'm not sure if its any easier but you could setup a visibility Filter that is then applied to a view template which apply to serveral views.

I clicked on a section line, edit type, duplicate, and only changed the name to "Section - Zoning"

Then under Visibility Graphics, Filter Tab - I created a new filter that looks sections that contain "Zoning" in the name. Then just uncheck the visibility of that item.

Next you could apply this filter to all your views or create view templates that use this filter.

Thanks that will be a kind of semi automated solution. It does confirm my feeling that there is no straight way of avoiding that from happening.

There is a way to do this.  Create an option set called ????? with the default option having nothing.  Create a second option in that set and lets call it special sections.  In your plan with your working drawing section, set special sections as the current option and either draw a section overtop of the working drawing section.  This section marker will now only show in plans when that option set is set to show.
