This option regulates whether the portion of the section or elevation line that falls within the structure contour is drawn. If the option is not selected, the section and elevation line are also shown within the building contour. If the option is selected, the section/elevation line can only be shown in the structure contour as much as the line length value.

Entities to exclude on section
The marked of foundations, libraries, jambs, sweeps, railings and terrains are not cut.
Cut object color and scan settings
In this dialog, the colors, hatching types and thickness values of the cut objects are set. The cut objects are divided into different object types such as concrete, wall, door/window, coating, roof, footing, terrain, pool and other, and thickness, color and hatching type can be arranged for each type.

The pen thickness that will appear in the section of the cut objects is listed. The thickness value of the assigned color is displayed on the thickness line.
The colors of the cut object can be adjusted according to the object type. A color is selected by clicking the color box. The pen thickness of the color is determined by clicking the right mouse button on the color box.
If the option is checked, it means that the cut object will be hatched. If the option is not selected, it means the object will be left blank without hatching.

Draw only lines
Hatches of composite materials assigned in the section's own settings of entities are not drawn, only layer lines are drawn.
Draw section hatch
The hatch type on the right side of the dialog becomes active and entities in the section are hatched with the selected hatch type.
Fill waffle slab spaces
In ribbed slab, it regulates whether the gap between the teeth will be closed in the section. If the option is selected, the lines between the ribs are closed.
Objects that appear in sections and elevation can be drawn in different colors and with different thicknesses by separating them into different level groups as they move away from the vertical section and elevation plane, by defining different color and pen number as object and object groups at each different level. The number of levels, pen thicknesses and colors can be edited by the user in the project.
Elevation levels pen list
In the pen list created from 1 to 9, color and pen thickness are adjusted according to item numbers. The colors and thicknesses of the objects that are apparently leveled and pen thicknesses are determined depending on the color indexes. Colors are selected from the color pack opened by holding down the left mouse button. Objects that enter the leveling are drawn according to the selected colors. In the drawing phase, pen thicknesses are taken into consideration.
The number of items to be assigned to the levels considered in vertical section and elevation. The colors to be applied in the levels are determined according to the value entered in this row. For example, in a view with 3 different levels, if the level number 5 is entered, the 1st level will be the 1st color; 2nd level with 2nd color; Level 3 with color 3; Level 4 with color 4; Level 5 is drawn in color 5. If level number 3 is entered, level 1 will be transferred with 1st color; 2nd level with 2nd color; Levels 3, 4 and 5 are drawn in third color. If the level number is 1, all levels are drawn in 1st color.
Elements to be seen can be drawn in different colors and pens according to a certain level, and in addition, objects at the same level are divided into types and different color and pen thickness can be arranged for them. Object types are specified as shown in the list, and different pen thicknesses can be applied by giving them the initial and final pen thickness.
Use single pen and First level color
If this option is selected, the pen thickness to be used for the relevant object type will be the same as the pen thickness of the color given in the first level color. If the option is not selected, the pen thickness range is taken into account as much as the number of items given in the number of levels row, based on the thickness of the color selected in the first level color box. For example, for Jamb, the first level color should be given the same as the color selected in the 1st pen number. The number of levels, for example, is 3. If the Use one pen option is selected, the jamb pen thickness will be taken as the thickness value given for the 1st pen. If the single pen is not marked, the pen thickness values given for item numbers 1, 2, and 3, respectively, will be used. Item thicknesses to be used in levels are also shown in the column used in Levels.
Add hatch to roof planes
The option that determines whether roofs can be hatched in appearance. If the option is selected, the frame is hatched according to the hatch type selected in the search box.
Objects that appear in sections and elevation can be drawn in different colors and with different pen thicknesses by separating them into different level groups as they move away from the section and elevation plane, by defining different color and pen number as object and object groups at each different level. In this dialog, the method to be used for leveling is determined.
Options and Descriptions
