When I create interior elevation views and drag the crop region to snap to the face of the ceiling, floor, and walls I get a thin outline.  I would like this outline to read as cut lines (because it's a cutline).  Is there a way, without stretching the crop region slightly outside of the edges, to make these lines thicker (preferably in visibility graphics or some way I can apply it globally)?

 

Thanks for your help.

"...crop region... without stretching the crop region slightly outside of the edges...."

 

Think about the logic here. You are snapping the crop to the middle of a line. Half of that line is being cut. There is no simple way, other than moving the crop out or making the line that you as snapping to so thick that it still looks like the boundry when cropped (which i wouldnt do, just move the crop, it doesnt take that long.)

Is there no way to apply a lineweight to the crop region boundary? Similiar to AutoCAD or ArchiCAD, ArchiCAD you could apply a lineweight to the view window AND modify the boundary to not just be a rectangle (I find this more frustrating than the lineweight issue). There is an option in print settings to "Hide Crop Boundaries", not sure where or if you could just apply a different lineweight to the boundary.

There is always a simple way, it just has to be set up correctly to begin with. And it does take long when you have 4 or 5 sheets of interior elevations with 8-16 views per sheet. Unfortunately i have been using masking regions a lot, mainly because i have sloped ceilings. I subscibed to this thread hoping to get some good tips on how to make this process faster...anyone?

Hi

Our office is trying 2 different ways at the same time to see which is more acceptable.

1. The method as described above for using the Crop Box Boarder of a "reverse Masking region".

2. My personal way.... In the Object Styles creat the CUT thickness to your needed lineweight, this can now be over ridden in the View Graphics as well.

Do you realize that you can right click on the crop boundry and choose "override graphics in view" then choose "by element" and you can assign the actual crop box a thickness. Then just make sure that when you go to print you deselect the "hide crop boundries" in the print setup area. This works swell and it's much less tedious, you just need to make sure that the views on your other sheets have hidden crop boundries if you are going to print a whole set.

Has this issue been updated at all by Revit 2012?  I'm still having this issue where the best choice seems to be overriding the crop boundary to be thicker in EACH VIEW and it's quite tedious.  I'm not a fan of dragging the boundary JUST outside the cut lines nor the masking region solution...

 

If only they could make the crop boundary part of the view template properties...

 

Please advise if this issue has been resolved.  Thanks.

I still have the same problem in R 2017 - how to find the "Crop Boundaries" in the  Object Styles?

I also need them heavy as a default.

Are you serious about overriding them in EACH view?
