Greetings!

I'm trying to hide the common edge lines in a particular wall, and still have the ability to have them on in another wall. I know how to hide common edges for all walls, but I am having trouble to do this per specfic wall. Can this be done in the view specifec element graphics? 

I am using Revit Archetecture 2017.

Here are two examples of walls in plan view. I want to remove the line running through the center of the wall on the right, and be able to keep the lines running through the wall on the left.

i can't think of any fast solutions , the only solution i can think of is the linework tool with invisible lines

Thanks for your reply Elnazer. Yeah, I was searching for answers before I posted this and that was the logical solution. Unfortunalty when i use the line work tool the "invisible" line creates a dashed lined for some reason...

Revit tries to offer a lot of tools to meet the needs of the industry. Not all needs can be met however as the complete needs of the industry are diverse and numerous. I would acknowledge that need is quite obscure and therefore the provision for this need within Revit is expectedly limited.

So my thoughts would be either go with the coarse/fine option, or as mentioned - use the linework tool to hide everything you don't want, or choose coarse and use detail lines to draw in what you want. There you go, three obscure ways to achieve an obscure need.

Revit would not be creating a dashed line.  I would try again with the invisible line tool - you probably have two lines there - one from each wall.

You can try duplicating the view, setting its view detail to coarse, applying a filter to display coarse walls only and, on the sheet, putting both views on top of each other.

 

Depending on your wall conditions, you could get an undesirable display at the wall intersections/connections.
