I've attempted to use the linework tool on an underlay in my floor plan in order to show the outline of the floor plate above.  I am new to Revit and was testing this out but now I am not able to remove the linework I've created in the active plan without deleting from the model entirely.  I can adjust the visibilty settings of the linework selected but this does not seem to help in removing the linework completely from this plan which I would like to do.  Please help if you have any thoughts!

Select everything and use filter (funnel symbol)?

In Linework, you are not actually creating lines but modifying the line appearance of an object. To return it to its original property, select the object/line and click "by category" option from Linework command.

I've tried this but the objects I had originally selected to change the linework appear to still be in the floor plan view while they are actually associated with the level above.  They are not visible but when my mouse rolls over them I can select and modify.  This seems messy and worries me that an object could accidentally get selected in another view and deleted or moved.  Should the "by category" linework option fix this?  Is there a way to select the object in question and see what linework is assigned to make sure I have done this correctly? 

For now I have modified the object linework in question to the "by category" and then selected as "hide in view" by element.  For now this seems to remove the linework from the active view but I would still like to understand this issue better.

Read this chapter in your HELP:  Changing Line Styles for a View Underlay

You can use the Overhead line style for tracing underlays or define your own line style.  These lines (2D) are then part of the view and you turn off the underlay.
