Anyone have the same problem as me?  When I show hidden lines anytime I always get two double lines that are not right on top of each other perfectly and it ends up looking like a solid line.  My guess is that revit is showing the other edge of the geometry and the other edge is not the same length as the edge closest to me therefore it creates overlapped dashed lines that look solid (no space between each dash).  Can revit be told to only show the edge of geomatry that is closest to the drawer? It seems like no matter what it shows all edges of the geometry being told to show through.

Haven't seen this before (and don't use show hidden line much) and would be surprised there is a built in work around for something that's not supposed to happen. If the lines are lined up they shouldn't offset ? Perhaps this is common. Not sure.
