this is an excerpt from a longer post on Layout and Drafting.
I recall here to gain more visibility and to address this argument @rajaa which has done so far a very nice job.
Section Tools is a powerful tool which unfortunately looks almost frozen to 2017, It is the only Dynamic tool available for layouts. Here some suggestions for development:
Layers state should be associated to section: When I update the section, I do not have to bother to toggle layers or select items again.
Section Clips should remain always hidden.
All Options could be managed through a dedicated panel where I can see/manage a list of Sections and their attributes or toggle an update.
A panel like this would allow to drag and drop straight to a Layout (like suggested above), placing a detail view with correct orientation and Layer visibility.
I prefer to leave sections on their place in the model and compose my drawing with Layouts but, in case stLayout Command is used to place Sections on World XY plane:
Placed Sections should have the option to be rearranged. A Layout need always some tweaks!
There should be another Grip point option more than Center/Mid/Max . This is almost useless… If the object is modified and I update the section this is moved around, due to Grip point limitation. I think there should be a Zero Option related to Model Coordinates, say X=0 Y=0 for a Transverse Section which keep it always in place.
