What type of objects can be projected into a profile view? I know that points, feature lines, and multiview blocks can be projected with variable results. I can't even find a simple list within Civil 3D's.

I am using C3D 2012. I my drawing I have 3D solid objects that I want projected into my roadway x-sections. When I use the menu command to "project objects to section views" and select "solids" I get the message "no objects to project". Are their different types of solid objects in autocad?
When creating multiple sections using the draft option what settings control how the sections are placed? For example, 5 across, 4 down.
edit - I have several alignments. One that has 8 section views is created with 4 across and 3 down, another with 18 sections is created with 5 across and 4 down and a third with 34 is created with 6 across and down. I'd like to be able to control this if possible.
I am working on a corridor project where I have to make section views of the road. I created my sample lines by range of stations, and made all of my section views from there. Now I need to add volume tables for each section view.
I have 28 section views, and more to come when I do another set of sample lines for another road, and I don't feel like going through each section view individually to make volume tables for them.
Is there a way I can create total volume tables for all of my section views at the same time? It would save a lot of time!
I have created multiple sections and produced drawings, but now need to amend the design and provide 1 additional section on the drawings. I added an additional sample line to the sample line group and then updated the secion view layout but the additional section did not show in the multiple section view. Is there a way to add the additional section to the existing multiple section view? or do I need to go through the process of deleting the current sections and creating a new multiple section view that includes the new sample line?
I am attempting to create section views from a corridor. I have about 80 sections total that I would really like to stack 3 high...then just across the page. Any step by step that make this process easy to understand?
Right now I get 10 high then across the page (using 'draft' option). I've tried to make a dwt at a 10 scale, (setting the viewport at 10 scale and viewport as a 'section' in the properties), but when I use that, the sections start overlapping (this is using the 'production' option).
I have a marker on a cross section that was projected from a short feature line that I created from a 3DPolyline. If I move the cross section (they never come in correctly, right?), the feature line moves too. If I use a 3Dpoly, this doesn't happen. Only went to the feature line because for some reason, when I went to Project Multiple, the 3Dpolys weren't picked up.
Now I wondering if I've moved feature lines on other projects where I have moved the sections. Could be a real problem. Most of those, though, had a mix of feature lines and 3Dpolys, so they would only be partially messed up! Hopefully, I moved the sections before doing the projection.
I have lots of section views with some surfaces and pipes. Unfortunately, in a number of section views pipes are not shown in full height because the section view level range is too little. What I am wondering is - is it possible to automatically adjust section level ranges so that they fully include pipe sections? Please see also the image in the attachment.
In my section editor my labels show up correctly and in all the locations I want. But then, in my cross section file, I look in my section views and they are completely different. When I try to label more points under the Code Set Styles, they won't even show up on my section views.
is it possible to get the start and end station of each projected objects?
see picture. what i am doing is based on the different colour. they are geotechnical requirement for the minimul fill depth. so i am thinking about making a program to put in a profile for me and then put horizontal curves. so don't need to do anything by hand. good starting point at least. save a lot of time and not really hard to code either.

I have set one station equation in my alignment and it displays correctly in horizontal view and in profile. But stations of projected objects after that equation are not correct in projected object label. It displays station values as it would be without station equation. If i manually insert profile view label for that point it is correct.
As you can see in attached image green station value (that one is label for projected points) is wrong because it does not take equation into calculation. How to make projected objects labels to consider station equation?
I am trying to create section views to track beach erosion. I have created an alignment and sample lines successfully. The shorter sections look as they should. The longer sections are a mirror of themselves (ex: a section that should be 529' in length is drawn as 1058'). Is this a matter of needing to create a corridor and going the other processes that normally have to be done for a road or is there something else I am missing here?
I'm working with civil 3d 2012,I'm trying to find a solution for the following problem,in Civil I have an alignment of 2kilometer and they want a section view every 5 meters,
automatically I can create over 500 section views, no problem there,but then I want to plot these 500 section views to a png file,and to do that I need to get all of them in separated layouts, for which there also is an automated function but its stops at 255 layouts,I've done 4 km in split up drawings..I've got 40km left no option splitting it up in 1 km sections.
I've a 3D drawing. I'm taking parts out into new layouts with the "Base" command. I place the top view but when I project the "End Views (left, right, front & back)" I can't see them? They are there, when I move my mouse over them I can see them. What's up with this?
I have the task of creating elevation views of a site. These views require that the model be clipped along a section line to crop the forground so it doesn't obstruct the view of the site.
I've experimented with the section plane tools in the 3D modeling workspace but I can't get a section view. I suspect it is because they don't work with C3D surface objects. Any workflow for this task? Ultimately I need to generate hard copies of the views for the architect to use for his landscape plans.
I created a base drawing for sections that references an alignment. I xrefed in the drawing where my corridor was created. When I create the section views, the corridor shows up perfectly.
I then created a blank sheet and xrefed in my section view base drawing.In this sheet drawing, only parts of the corridors are visible.I have a C&G on one assembly and a shoulder on another assembly that aren't visible. (see pics)The first pic is my section base drawing.
I have to represent a road section with limits of houses or any interference on field. All of thees interferences are poly lines, 3dpoly, lines, etc. Is it possible to have a little mark or something like this in a road section, it will work for me a lot for represent the houses in my sections.
