Sections in render view

Hi. I would really like to be able to look at a section in render view. I think this can be done. Could someone point me at the tutorial or some instructions please. 


Hi, Elizabeth. This is from the Help system if you search 'Clip':


Interactive Clip Command

The Clip command cuts away the front plane of the image continuously to reveal the objects within and beyond. The size of the image does not increase or decrease. This command is very useful when viewing an image with exterior and interior components (e.g., interior and site lighting). The clip distance specifies how far away from the eye position the image will be truncated.

From the View menu, select Interactive - Clip, or from the Common toolbar select:

 The cursor will change to a camera to indicate interactive mode. Drag (left click and hold) up, or arrow up, to clip in (clip distance increases). Drag (left click and hold) down, or arrow down, to clip out (clip distance decreases).


Here's a before and after shot from a multi-room project using a Top view:

I don't normally utilise this tool so I'm not overly familiar with it. I have only used the mouse with it (which can be a little 'hit and miss'. The instructions say you can use the up and down cursor keys. This is correct, but I found it doesn't work unless you move the mouse into the Viewport. If you leave it in the toolbars you get no response.
