    How do you make a section view have a splined line as it's broken contour?

      Hey everybody,

       

      I was wondering if it is possible to create a splined (squiggly) line in a section view or detailed view. In drawings, traditionally, section views and detailed views are created with a spline at the area of the break. SolidWorks defaults these types of views with straight edges which can confuse many people trying to read the prints. The only way that I have seen to make it into a spline is by using the "Crop" command after creating a slpine sketch in the desired manner. Attached are some pictures to help explain and decipher what I'm trying to find out.

       

      Thank you in advance.
