Can Section View be saved in a Display State?

I regularly need to see different Section Views of huge machine assemblies containing several Configurations and Display States. It is straight forward to create the section views - but I need to do it every time an assembly is reopened. Can the Section Views be saved as part of Display States? It doesn't seem so...


E.g. I would like to create a Display State called "Machine Center, vertical section" , then make a section view through the center of the machine and finally save the active Display State. So next time I would open the assembly and activate the Display State "Machine Center, vertical section" I would see the required Section View without having to recreate it.


Today some of my colleagues simply make a new configuration with a cut-extrude, that cuts away half the machine - but this just seems wrong. I also think, that increases file size... Using Display States must be more efficient.
