Edge to edge centre line & centre mark.

When trying to use these two features in drawing, I find they will not work in projected views. This is a topic I have posted previously but thought I had solved. However not so, Can anyone say if this normal or is there a problem that anyone can help with. I have a spiral stair landing with handrail  that I am trying to dimension to the centre line, also holes in which I would like to place a centre point.
Thank you   Brian.

    Sounds like your edges might be made of splines - a centerline can only be created on arcs and lines - can you post a link?

    This is the link to the problem Drawing, It is the section and the projected views where I find the problem.

    It's because it is a section view (though why that should matter I don't know - please report as a bug). Create an auxiliary view instead - that works.

    @brian_pinder662 @NeilCooke We have a bug currently on centerlines and centermark creation on angled section views.  A fix is coming.  I suspect that is the issue you were hitting here.  If it was not, I would encourage you to submit a bug report using the tool in the help menu.

     Regards Brian (Have a good day)
