    Default Detail component manager

    I used to be able to select a component such as a W8x15 from the detail component manager, and inserted in section view. Now, it only inserts it in plan view.
    I can't figure out why. I need the steel in section view.
    The options at insertion are to flip the X and Y axis, and change justification.
    Does anybody have an answer?
    Thank you,
    -alex

    When you insert it ensure that you have the properties palette open (ctrl + 1), in there you have the option to change the insertion to plan, section or elevation depending on what type of detail you are inserting.

    Thank you very much, Steve.
    You are correct, sir!
    How could this have happened? How did it change?
    Thank you for your help.
