I'm at a loss with this. I have absolutely no idea why this is happening...  I would really appreciate any help with this.


We have "Show Hidden Lines" set to "All" in our view template. We have it like that in order to display everything we need from the floor below like walls and wall openings. The problem goes away when that is set to anything else but we need it on "All".

Lately, we've been having a display issue with our line styles only when they print. They look fine on screen but when printed they all show the same hidden line type inside of them. Not all line styles are affected though. Most of the system line styles seem to be unaffected.

I finally narrowed down what is causing it and it doesn't make any sense to me. When you adjust the Hidden Line (subcategory) style for Walls, it also changes all the hidden line types in the line styles. It's very strange.

I can override each individual line on screen and then it prints fine. However, I can't find a way to override the whole line style for each different kind of line. I included a screenshot of an example of some of the different line styles we have. Notice that the weird red hidden lines inside all the detail lines all match the hidden lines for the walls from the level below.


Maybe I'm missing some setting in our view template. Could I apply a filter for each line style somehow? Could I somehow make the hidden lines for all line styles not print like a non print layer in AutoCAD? Could it be a height or view range issue? Why would a subcategory for walls affect how the rest of the hidden lines for all line styles appear?
