It is a good practice to publish an issue with a section box already applied in the view state. This will facilitate multiple users accessing the issue in any platform in an array of view states. If a section box is not applied to the project when creating the issue, we can active one and use the Update from current view or the Add from current view as seen in the video below:
Unfortunately, due to an API limitation within Navisworks, it is not possible to save/restore sections boxes using Navisworks 2015 & 2016. However, it is fully interoperable between Revit 2015/2016/2017 & Navisworks 2017.
