[TD] Improvement suggestion for Section Views

Post by balrobs »

Actually when I create a Section View from a View the cut line with the cut designation is displayed in it.
But when I use the created Section View to create another Section View I get no further cut line anywhere.
So I visually have no idea where the second Section View belongs.
IMHO it would be very helpfull to at least show the cut line also in the Base View (red symbols in the following picture) and ideally also in all other related Views and Section Views (orange symbols).

Section of a section never occurred to me. Tunnel vision, I guess.

Showing the section line on a base view that happens to be a section seems straight forward. Showing the line on the original view is harder.

Thank you for your quick reply and for creating the issue!
I think showing the line on the base view that happens to be a section would already be a great step forward.
Cheers!
