Broken-out section view arrows

How do I get the section cutting line and arrows of a broken-out section view in its parent view?

    @Henk_de_V Can you post an image of what you want in a drawing?  Broken out section views don't contain view arrows as they modify a view and don't create a new child view.  Perhaps we are speaking about different things here.  An image would be worth a thousand words.

    In the screenshot I marked red the items from which I don't know how to get them automatically inserted while creating a broken-out section.
    In the upper view the broken-out section A-A is visible (sorry for the missing 'c'). In the lower projection view (the so called parent of the upper view) I myself have drawn the missing (green) cutting line and two section arrows.

    What I like to have is that these items are drawn by Onshape.
