I've created a set of stairs that start and end on treads instead of risers, thus the top and bottom treads are at the same elevation of their corresponding floors. (See "SECTION" image attached).

 

This is typically how our contractors build stairs that connect to the edge of a slab opening. Ultimately, the tread and floor finish material will be the same. The problem I'm having is that the tread/floor connection shows up in plan view and can easily be mistaken for a riser. (See "STAIR" image attached).

 

So far I've tried "masking" the line with an opaque white detail region and I even tried drawing a model line over it with view overrides to make it white. With either of this options, I run into problems like accidently clipping nearby stringers and railings, "masking" the Up/Down text at the stairs, and having to do either of these options for every plan view.

 

Is there a better way to hide this line in plan view?

 

I'm using Revit 2014.

Thanks, that did it!

 

The sad part is that I never knew this tool existed until you mentioned it! I had checked every tool under the View tab and couldn't find it. Turns out it was in the Modify tab. I'm sure Autodesk had a reason for putting it there...

Believe it or not, there is a pretty good logic to how Revits tools are organized.  You might think the linework tool is a view item but that would be incorrect.  The linework tool is a modification of a model element line and yes .... it is only in a specific view which may seem to be contradictory. 

 

I will suggest that you look at all menus and try out all the tools or at least hover over them to see the tool tip on their use.  Revit does a good job with that information.  And another very, very good suggestion is to always watch the options bar as you work because you will see very important secondary settings show up there only when you work.
