Select roof / right click / overide in view by element / override the projection lines.

 

or you could just use the linework tool.

"....change the outline without altering the existing outline?"  < That's an oxymoron....

 

A couple of possibilities. 

  1. Design options.  Have two different roofs - 1 in each DO
  2. Uses phases that show demolished and new work.

You can read about both of these processes in your HELP.

 

To answer your first question, please read this topic in your HELP: Changing Line Styles for a View Underlay

Thanks heaps guys. The right click was so much easier than what I was trying. I had to show the whole roof as being demolished but as its dashed anyway doesnt matter.

in VG, you can override roof projection lines, line type, hidden. 

 

also, if you want your roof to show up, and not the rest of the view that's underlayed, you could use a plan region that just clips a bit of the roof, which will make all of the roof appear.  Plan regions do not print.

Not sure what your last question is.  If you had read the Help item I pointed you to, you would see that you can selectively show items above your cut plane in floor plans by:

  1. Use an underlay of the roof plan
  2. Use the linework tool to pick what lines you want to show from the underlay and the linetype you want
  3. REMOVE THE UNDERLAY!

If your question is about a roof plan, you can use masking regions for large areas, linework tool (including invisible lines) and you can over-ride graphics in view.

in my practice we place another view over the plan, as taught by mr spot.  it only contains roof (or whatever you want 'above'), in wireframe, with overrides for lines to be dashed.  so if you change anything, no need to update your linework.  just watch it if you move one view.  we also do this for framing layouts - and usually have three views.  say for roof framing, bottom one is walls, middle one is structure, top one is roof outlines.  they usually need different view ranges you see.  the key to this is something mr spot showed us a while ago - use revit's considerable abilities to reduce drafting.
