Making a detail view of a section view

Mike_HedgerMike_Hedger Member Posts: 1
I can't seem to make a detail view of a section view on a drawing.  Is this not supported.  Further to that, is it possible to edit the shape of the detail view to make it something other than a circle?  I use this on every drawing I do at work.

    +1 (you know there's an improvement request section right?) :)

    @philip_thomas  I don't want to research several pages of request to find the one to vote on.

    I'm sure everyone feels the same, therefore your voting system may be somewhat in valid.

    @philip_thomas may have been referring to the Improvement Request section of this forum:


    and suggesting that it would be more productive to make the request (and +1 it) there.

    Users don't need to research that page first if you don't want to.  You can just submit feedback within the document and explain what ails you.  We in support can tie it to existing requests that we reference for internal reasons.  If you want it can be very low overhead for you, especially you @_Dave_ ;)

    Detail view off of a section is a must. That's what I was expecting to do today.
