In file / utilities no options for section view - hidden lines.

Would they have buried that setting in the "drafting standard" section of the customer defaults?

I don't believe there is an option specifically for hidden lines in section views.

It can only be done after the view is created.

 

As for the lock alignment, change the placement to inferred and then you can "align to hinge" (see image below).

Thank you for your response. I was looking for something like "Align to Hinge".

In older version NX (9; 8.5; ...) section view was always created without hidden lines, independent of the base view.

The setting you've shown is a Common setting, meaning it applies to all view types, not just section views. NX10 is no different to the previous releases in that regard.

There is a difference.

NX9

 

and NX10

 

When create section view from base view (with view hidden lines), I must always deactivate hidden lines. It is unnecessary clicks for me.

I noticed that when creation of the section view, it follows the hidden line setting of the parent view. After creation of the section view, you could change the parent view hidden lines and the section view will not change its hidden lines. Anyhow too many clicks.

 

PS: In drafting standards (DIN ISO) it clearly state that NO HIDDEN LINES (unless really necessary) in the sectional views.

So if we are following standards, NX default should be this setting i.e No Hidden Lines in the section view. Unfortunately, we have to manually check and change it each time to follow the Standard.
