Maybe it is possible change the Edit Section panel to something like this:
I like it. Look for it in a future update.

I'm having a problem that might be related.
I create a section but the result I get is not what I would expect.

I have two (wooden) parts that are being connected by dowels.
I create a section that intersects one of the dowels.

I want to be able to show the measurements of the connecting parts, the dowles, the depth and the diameter of the hole.

Two things that I would have expected to behave differently:

1. I wouldn't have expected to see the front face (cutout & holes) on the section. I think there is no reason for this.

2. I would have expeced to have a line surrounding the holes and the dowels to better differentiate between them or (even better) to be able to manually add different hatches to the three different parts. The way it works now makes it hard to even see (or distinguish) the hole with the dowel.

Please, you should include in the post your FreeCAD installation details. Also, it would be useful to share the file. This way @wandererfan can understand what is the problem.

1) The latest version displays your section as:
basmati_test_section_Assembly_orig.png

2) The end view is displayed as:
basmati_test_section_endview.png
basmati_test_section_endview.png (6.12 KiB) Viewed 75 times
I think this is closer to what you wanted.
