Can I modify Linework with blue dot grips in perspective view as in other orthographic views? 

 

I would use Split Face to use Paint tool. The Split Face line is too thick/dark what it is for, so I always use Linework to make it a lot lighter as I couldn't find any option in Object Style. The problem is, when in perspective hidden line view, if I use Linework tool, the line will show up over other objects without giving me the blue dot grips to edit it. 

 

The best scenario would be to have default Split Face line very light gray without having to use Linework at all. The worst thing I came up with is, send the perspective view to a sheet and hide the line on the sheet. Then, even with a slight change of the view angle later for whatever reason, I will have to work twice again on the sheet. This kind of doing the same thing over and over whenever changes are made is just like using AutoCad and Sketchup.

Thank you, dingohot. But I think you missed the part why I had to come up with such tedious and painpul method.

in that case, just over draw lines you want with Model Line tool on the wall face, and hide slice face line in the perspective view, than you can see only modelline. it follows view angle because it's a Model not annotation.

Thanks a lot. It will do the job for now. 

 

However, I find it very troubling and disappointing that there doesn't seem to be a way to globally control Split Face line weight. It is only for material change, why on earth is it the same line weight as wall line.
