Ever wondered precisely where that Jogged section is Jogging?
Revit allows us to use the Split Segment tool to create a Jogged Section to omit / incorporate entities, components or elements in our Section cuts which fall outside the initially cut Section line. This tool is executed by selecting on an already placed Section. Modify Views contextual Tab > Section panel > Split Segment Tool (Fig. 2). The user then clicks directly on the Section cut line where they want to "Jog" the section.
However, when we go into the Section view, we cannot determine exactly where the Section made the Jog, as there is no designation or marker for the location of the Jog (Fig. 3). It is to be noted that the user can Jog the section as many times as necessary to create the desired effect (Fig. 4).
After placing the Section and creating the desired Jogs, draw (and Name for your future reference, i.e. Section 1 Jog 1, Section 1 Jog 2) a Reference Plane at the Jogged locations (Fig. 5). Start your Reference Plane (Keyboard Shortcut = RP), Select the Endpoint of the Jogged Section line first and draw the Reference Plane parallel to the Jog. WHAMMY! Now we know exactly where our Jogs are cut (Fig. 6).
