Chief is a tool, it has a lot of automaticity built into it but it relies on YOU to make the informed choices. Take Eric's and my recommendations to learn the software and its procedures or hire someone to help you learn that. It is mostly settings (Default Settings per category and other Dialog box settings for objects). Specifically for Cross Sections and Exterior Elevations you use Elevation camera tools to get started, then manually add text and dimensions. When done you can save the View for later sending to layout. For Cross Sections there are to "Automatic" tools: one, "CAD-Auto-Detail" where Chief adds 2D overlays to make your Cross section/Elevation more finished but it does what it does based upon how you set it up in Default and other settings and two: Auto-Story Pole Dimensions which, ONCE SET UP BY YOU, can then place markers and dimensions on exterior elevations and Cross sections.
But all of the above must be first studied, practiced with and then used as part of one's gained competence.
