Where is the Section Symbol?

Recommended Posts

trying to add a section symbol to a section view.

I seem to remember seeing it in the catalog but can't find it again.

Use a Text Callout with 1 Large Arrow.  It won't have the arrow at the tail, but otherwise it's works.  You can block it and put it in your Library, but it's easier to just set it up in the defaults.

Yes, when you select the text parent tool, you'll see a child tool for the callout or marker.

This post reminds me of how I would like to have variations on Chief's single section symbol.

SO YOU HAVE TO BUILD YOUR OWN ARROW AND SECTION LINE?

NO. JUST USE THE CALL OUT IN THE TEXT BOX. LOOKS LIKE THIS.

Alan,

 

That is an option that Chief doesn't provide.  If you really have to have that then you will have to make your own.  You could add that & add to your user Library.  But then after you place it you have to unblock to edit the text.

This should not be a big deal. I do it all the time. I use a cad line with an arrow. I do it in a few seconds.
