Clipped view, section shows through object

The section shows through the objects.
Looks strange…
In the Section Style dialog one can only switch off the border completely.

In V7 we don’t have all the options, but looks ok to me:

How can we get a similar view as in V7?

Since there was no reaction to this, I assume it’s not a bug.
So this is the new standard for how it works in V8?

I just want to know.

Hi Charles -

It looks like this was recently broken. I’ll put it on the list.
RH-77944 Display: Section edge shows through all objects

Hi Charles -

Could you post the SystemInfo data from the version that you are running now?

Hey Charles, how did you end up with 8.1? I believe this was a bug I introduced only in 8.1.

I don’t know!
Most likely I turned the daily builds on at some time and forgot about it.
( Please help me to go back to 8.0.)

I think I can manage it myself.
Uninstall, download beta and go.

In the works now.

Ok, you used a test command to do this. I just wanted to make sure we weren’t accidentally sending out 8.1 to users at large. Thanks

Uninstalled 8.1
Installed 8.0

Rhino 7 License is gone!

I’m going to assume based on your recent posts that you are back up and running

Yes, nevertheless I wanted to inform that the license was killed by uninstall.
That was the same with V6 licenses
in early 7 days.
