I had the same problem myself recently. Section Line Marker ID - SoftPlan 2022 - SoftPlan Users ForumI did some cross section drawings and accidentally deleted the section lines which removed my marker IDs. I ended up placing new section lines with the correct letters and generating new cross sections. Then I erased the newly generated cross sections and pasted my old drawings into them. Totally impractical but I couldn't find a solution either. Seems like that would be something very simple to implement.

At the simplest level, I want the numbering to be numbers in one direction and letters in the perpendicular direction. SP doesn't allow this.

My solution is as follows -

Draw all your SP section lines on a separate layer.

Place a section line symbol of your creation on another layer aligning over the SP section line. Edit to get the desired numbering system.

On your sheets, turn off the SP section line layer.

Edit the section title to reflect your section line symbol.

So... a few hoops to jump through but you can get the look that you want.

This is one case where SP's implementation doesn't allow editing to produce a conventionally compliant solution. I think this should be fixed.

Kris, why bother with layer for the section lines, you can turn off the visibility of section lines independently anyway in OPTIONS > VISIBLE ITEMS.
