I’m having an inconsistent issue where, after creating a section using SectionTools (and editing the hatches to be the correct patterns), I pop over to a layout tab and start drafting. Let’s say I’ve created your standard views; a plan, a front elevation, and a right section. I’ll create the detail views for each of them, set the scales, etc. Then I’ll make the section SEC_00 visible in the right view for my section view. Then, let’s say I want another right section view, let’s say for a zoomed-in detail. I copy the right section detail view and - all the hatches disappear. (Actually, in some cases, they’ll actually appear in the layout view instead). I really don’t understand.
The only way I’ve found that fixes this issue is to delete the SEC_00 layer and do all that work over again, which is EXCEPTIONALLY frustrating when the section is more complex.
I’ve uploaded a file here that picks up at the step RIGHT before I make the section visible in the first view.

Pick up where noted, if you’re testing…
Here’s my steps:
For demo purposes, I’ve created a 24" cube out of 3/4" material (we’ll say MDF) over an 18" cube of 3/4" material (we’ll say plywood).
I stCreate the section using the following settings.
I stViewSections to see the section I just created, set it to print as Dark Grey at 0.13mm (our office’s hatch standards). Then I unlock the layer SEC_00 and edit the hatches from solid to the appropriate patterns, relocking the layer when I’m done.
I’ll pop over to my layout view and create a right view. (Test file picks up here) Then I’ll stViewSections inside that view to see the section cut/hatches.
Then, I want to create a detail view of the bottom right corner of that view, let’s say, so I’ll go to copy the detail and then…
All the hatches are gone! I have yet to find a SectionTools command that fixes this. That black line on the left? That’s all the hatches/surfaces/curves that ST created, now in my layout tab.
Am I doing something wrong?
