Section Tools possible BUG

Maybe it’s a possible BUG in section tools. Hard to explain. Please watch the video. Basically I generate a plan of a building, using “section tools”, create drawing. Then, when generating another layout page, the 2D plant drawing disappears. :-). This week I have 40 students who must generate documentation via section tools, and things are not going well. I hope someone can help me. Thanks.

Hi Alfonso, welcome and thank you for reporting this. I have created an issue https://mcneel.myjetbrains.com/youtrack/issue/RH-82197

Can you please let us know which version of Rhino you are using, and post the details from the SystemInfo command.

Hi Affonso -
Thanks for the SystemInfo data.

I’ve tried to reproduce the issue that is shown but am unable to do so here. Could you post a (simpified) 3dm file that we can use to try to reproduce this here?
