Can anyone explain why the Cross Section View options are grayed out? The help instructions are pretty clear. The cabinet is selected. The red line never appears.

Dave,

Cross section needs to be done from the front view of a wall. The wall must be selected and be at a flat view, not rotated.

So I can't just take one cabinet to the LDE and get a cross section?

Thanks for the info.

Hi David, you can take a single cabinet into LDE and rotate it 90 degrees. You can even select a side and hide it so as to see the internals.

Hope that helps, Forrest

Thanks Forrest. That's what I ended up doing. Just thought the ability to use the cross section tool would be cool.

I too was wondering why it's in the right-click context menu in the Line Drawing Editor but greyed out! Kinda like a big tease. Why not just remove it from that menu in the LDE if it doesn't work there anyway?
