In Elevation views, I want to have the Gridlines and Level lines at halftone.  However, graphically they are layered on top of the model and any Detail linework, so the halftone line overtakes the model when printing.  Is there any way to send the gridlines to the back?

Best way to solve this problem is to change the Grid line 'type' from say . . . 1/4" Bubble to 1/4" Bubble Gap or Custom Gap.

 

Most people don't realize that there are different Grid Types. Have a look at the type selector either before you draw the grid or after you draw it.

 

Then you will get two new grips that form a 'break' in the grid line. Just stretch the grips to the top and bottom of the wall that is being obscrued. The inner segmant can be set to 'none' or a different color or linetype.

 

Check the 'type properties' of either the 'Gap' or 'Custom Gap' grid types for additional control.

Thank you for that solution.  It solves half the problem.  It does work for Gridlines, but Level Lines are a different entity, and they do not seem to able to be gapped or broken like either Gridlines or Section Lines

I don't think there any trick for Levels. They are very persistant. Even if you draw a detail on top of the level line and use the 'Bring to Front' tool it still will not obscure the level line. Anyone else ?

Levels have a 3D extents and if they are cropped a 2D view specific extents.  In the view where they don't display as you wish, make sure they are cropped or switch them to be 2D in that view and drag the level out of the model geometry and off to the side.  If you truely want the level to run through the model, then as DGCad suggests you are kind of out of luck.

Thanks guys.

It's just strange that (A) Levels and Grids do not have similar graphic functionality, and (B) they are graphically displayed in front of... well, anything!

If I created Revit, I would have...   8^)
