how to get the orthogonal drawing in Onshape to produce AS1100 conventions ?

Hi Onshape experts,

Can anyone tell me how to get the orthogonal drawing in Onshape to produce AS1100 conventions for the following:

- half sections for symmetrical objects and revolve PCD holes in sectioned views as missing below - I also can't get the 2 point centreline to work for some reason:

- how to get Onshape to produce a conventional thread in the orthogonal drawing and not as shown in the view below:

    For thread representation I usually do a rectangle sketch in the model on the plane you will be viewing in the drawing and then show that sketch to give the tramlines for the thread.  For holes these will be generated automatically using the hole tool.

    Does the  section view button not do what you need for the section view?  What does it fail to do?
