Actually Yorik, I've just noticed that Arch section is not working for me at all. So I tested again in this older version below from a week or two ago, (and with older OCC 6.5.0) and Arch section doesn't work either.
OS: Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS
Version: 0.14.3236 (Git)
Python version: 2.7.3
Qt version: 4.8.2
Coin version: 3.1.3
SoQt version: 1.5.0
OCC version: 6.5.0
I just tried in this old version above as well as the most current version
Section planes are not placing anything in the drawing. The Arch section is supposed to put a cross section of the item its passing through into a Drawing, isn't it?
rockn's test file had a Arch section in it when I open it, but it does not have a Drawing page. But I see that if I add a new Section, it creates a Drawing Page,...but it doesn't put anything in that Drawing.
I created a test file with a default Part Box and Cylinder. I put views of the solids in the Drawing to confirm that it works and work out sensible values for position and scale in the Drawing. But I can't get the Section to show up anything.
Also if I toggle the visibility Property of the Drawing View item, in the comboview view tab, it makes no difference to the image in the drawing page, that is, the view of the cylinder stays visible and the sections remain invisible in the Drawing page.
