Hi Lawrence,

  I'm not sure what you mean by "exact cross-section".  Do you mean aligned to the virus map grid axes?  If so the Orient button at the bottom of the volume viewer dialog will do that.  But probably it is better to simply specify which planes to show using the Region Bounds panel of the volume viewer dialog (Features menu) - specify a z range 120 125 1 to show planes 120 to 125 using step 1 (i.e. every plane).  This will be better than using clip planes.
