Is there anyway to show section plan markers on selected stories? As on Main floor plan and Upper floor plan, but not on Site plan and roof plan? I see it’s either show All or on one of the stories, or setting vertical limits.
The Grid Tool lets me select which story i want to show grid lines. Does Section marker work like this?
Thanks for the help.

Unfortunately it is all storeys or and individual storey.
But what you can do is show the 'source' marker on you main storey - with an infinite height so it still cuts through all storeys.
And then add a 'linked' marker to the upper storey and set it to show only on that storey.
You don't add linked markers to the site or roof storeys, so there will be nothing to show there.
But there is always possibility to program your own GDL object for section marker head, that can behave specifically - for example to be shown on selected stories or to be shifted on different stories in different locations. The only problem with this would be - section line will be still visible on all stories, so it needs to be hidden then.
If this problem about section marker appearance exists constantly (not only on one-two projects) - maybe it worth to consider about your own GDL object.

Yeah, that will work too.
But if you want to show some elevation/section markers on and others off, you will have to have multiple marker layers.
Correct, Barry. That's what I do.
The way I see it, if a section changes position for any reason, there's no need to hunt for the linked markers to align them; also new sections added on the correct layer show based on the layer combo. I guess it all depends on the project.
