I am just not sure, how this should be done. I see only one way:

1. Replace all sections in the map with automatically generated numbers.

2. List all sections with these numbers in map legend or separate page in atlas.

This I can imagine, but I am not sure, whether this is what you asked for.

In any case - we will open cross-sections sooner or later. I am currently
working on new 3D generation algorithm and for this, we will definitely need
exact positions of cross sections in 3D. So discussion and suggestions are
