Worksession and clipping planes - problem

Enabled clipping planes in attached files in Worksession cannot be deactivated. If a file is attached and it contains an enabled clipping plane that clipping plane will affect all geometry. The only way to disable the clipping plane is to switch the active file, wait for all the attached files to reload, find the enabled clipping plane and disable it. If the enabled clipping plane is in another file then the you have to switch the active file again, wait again for all the attached files to reload, find the enabled clipping plane and disable it. Repeat until the enabled clipping plane is found and disabled. Then switch the active file back to the file being worked and wait again for all the active files to reload.

A method to disable clipping planes in attached but not active files is needed.

Example files:
File 1.3dm (2.8 MB)
File 2.3dm (3.3 MB)
WS Example A.rws (656 Bytes)

Open the worksession file.
Note that File 2 is the active file and does not contain a clipping plane.
File 1 is attached and contains a clipping plane which is clipping geometry in the perspective window.
Try to disable the clipping plane.

Hi, bumping this up.
Could it be possible to disable worksession clipping planes in future versions of Rhino?

It is rather inconvenient when several people are working on the project through worksession files.

Checking it, thanks.

Hi @pascal
any news about this?
I am experiencing this problem too with
Version 7 SR28
(7.28.23058.3001, 2023-02-27)

I checked your link and look like we will have to wait for v8 to have this solved?
Do you confirm this?

this is still a problem
