4.    Click to set the ending point; 2020 Design will draw a rectangle. This rectangle, delimited by the solid line and dotted lines, represents the area to be shown in the custom "Elevation" pane. All items that intersect with the zone delimited by the rectangle will be displayed in the elevation.
