Re: Drawing problem: Section view not allowed

I figured it out. You're not allowed to section a configuration that has
been exploded within the assembly file. Why they didn't say "Cannot create
a section view from an exploded assembly configuration" is beyond me. Why
you can't section an exploded assembly configuration is also beyond me.
