I am exhausted...trying to get the elevations of this millwork for the lst 6 hours! . I used the interior elevation tool; drew the outline of the milwork and the 4 elevation symbols automatically placed. I opened the view from the interior elevations but they are not accurate. The generated interior elevations are not showing the 'recessed'. Maybe I have have to place the elevation boundary line way to the furthest back but then it will be like sectioning the millwork ot get the correct profile.....this got me thinking now. will let you know.

This is a different style of interior elevation than is common - you are facing "in" and surrounding the space, rather than facing out and capturing the surrounding walls and casework. I'm sure there is a way to make this work, but you may need to adjust the boundary or some of the settings.
One of the ones that you should definitely look at is the checkbox to "hide view-blocking walls". This is intended to prevent a short wall from blocking the view of the entire main wall, and it tells ArchiCAD to ignore that intervening wall, to essentially leave it out of the model for purposes of illustration.
Another checkbox to look at is the one that hides "cut elements" - when this is checked, ArchiCAD will not illustrate or include the section through casework that is actually being cut through or sectioned by the view lines.
Finally, there are some settings with regards to distance boundaries - whether or not to look beyond the end lines - this may be crucial to get it to render properly.
