    Section cut in elevation and plan view

    Hello,
    For a very complex project, all the panels are curved. Cutting a section through the panels on elevations will also show this section on plan view. So far so good.
    Being very curved, all the section view show unrealistic sections for the panels ( the cut being skewed, normal). Rotating the same section in plan view to cut perpendicular to the panels (to have a real section) will fix the section but it will take off the section symbol from elevation view. Is there a way to have also a symbol for section cut in elevation under these conditions(and maintaining the same section number)?
    Thanks

    From the elevation view, start a new section view. View > Section... but before clicking any points on the screen, activate "Reference another view", then select the first section view from the list. Then, proceed to click to define the two points that define the reference section.
