COMMAND "DRAW SECTION CUT ...." IN DRAW MENU ON ETABS 18 DOES NOT WORK

COMMAND "DRAW SECTION CUT ...." IN DRAW MENU ON ETABS 18 DOES NOT WORK

COMMAND "DRAW SECTION CUT ...." IN DRAW MENU ON ETABS 18 DOES NOT WORK

(OP)

In ETABS 18 I want to get the total CUTTING EFFORT at the base of various walls of my model, through the command "Draw Section Cut ...", this command DOES NOT WORK!
See Figure



Has anyone had this problem?
Is it a program defect? or will I need some configuration in ETABS?

RE: COMMAND "DRAW SECTION CUT ...." IN DRAW MENU ON ETABS 18 DOES NOT WORK

It works for me. So, you click on it and you cannot draw a section cut on the elevation where you want it?

'DOES NOT WORK' - could be so many things from that description?

Thanks for your answer.
What is happening is that it does not respond when I start drawing the horizontal line on the walls of the first floor to obtain the total cut of all the walls at that level.

We already tried ETABS version 18.0.1 and 18.0.2

RE: COMMAND "DRAW SECTION CUT ...." IN DRAW MENU ON ETABS 18 DOES NOT WORK

If version 18.1.1 still does the same thing then try contacting CSI to see if they can replicate and confirm an error.
