    segment section w/ scope box

    scope box is a great tool but seems having quite a few issues, for instance, after rotate project or true north, i have to recreate scope box unless someone can tell me i don't have to.

    now i encountered another issue, i have segment section directly cut through staircase, i can see that staircase untill i applied scope box, if i change that segment section back to normal section, then that staircase show up again, i mean in section view.

    i don't know if it's scope box issue, or staircase issue, anyone had similar case before?

    Very weird indeed :confued:

    You should send this file to Autodesk Support - Something is very messed up in the file as far as I can tell.

    happy new year Klaus!

    file should be OK as i created that new file w/o using any template in order to reduce file size, you can try create new file using normal or default template.

    looks like a bug to me.

    Happy New Years to you too!

    Tried to replicate the behavior on a blank file but couldn't - Which is why I suggested to have Autodesk Support looking at it.

    I ran into this problem yesterday. Prior to plot everything to PDF for delivery, I turned scope box on several sections and ruined all split sections . Luckily it was plot on pdf only...
    So today, I tried to recreate this situation and came to this conclusion - similar as Rahul.
    When scope box is applied to split section, near clip will occur, beginning at the plane in which the first part of section mark was drawn - no matter is it drawn form left to right or vice versa. Look at the attached example, section is drawn from right to left for this purpose. Version is 2011.
