How do you view a cross section of a part in a Part Studio

I used to be able to create a cross section of a part in Part Studio by selecting it in the View drop down box. However that option does not appear to be available anymore. Did it get moved?

    I always just use the keyboard shortcut Shift+X

    That sounds like a great solution but it does not work on my system

    That's weird. I know some people have had cross-section issues related to their browser. What system are you using? Do you see the same thing in a different browser?

    Thanks for your help but I don't think it is a browser issue. I have always gone to the drop down list for different views and there was an option for x-sections. That option is no longer there.

    Have you tried a different browser? Recently this was related to Safari 14.0.

    You were right. I tried a new browser and the 'x-section' option was there. That is surprising that a browser would prevent that item from being listed in a dropdown list. Thanks for your help.

    Currently Safari has a bug that prevents our section view graphics from working so we disabled the option to prevent any issues. Other browsers like Chrome and Firefox do not have this issue.
