Does anyone know how to display a wall below and object (a countertop for example) as hidden lines?  Or to display the lines of a wall below a sweep as hidden lines?  I see the Hidden Line object style under the wall category, but I am not sure how to assign anything to it.  I know you can use the linetype tool to change them, but this would be very tediuous for multiple objects.  I don't want to override the projection line style either, as this would change all of the projection lines, not just the ones below objects.

 Thanks for any help.

Straight from the help menu .... pays to look there first!

 

Model and detail elements that are obscured by other elements can be displayed using the Show Hidden Lines command. First, select the element that you want the hidden lines to display on. Next, select the obscured element that has the lines you want to bring through. You can use the Show Hidden Lines tool on all elements that have the Hidden Lines subcategory. The Remove Hidden Lines tool is the inverse of the Show Hidden Lines tool.

  1. Click Tools menuShow Hidden Lines, or on the Tools toolbar, click .
  2. Place the cursor on an element that is hiding another element, and click to select it.

    For example, select a filled region that is overlapping a wall.

  3. Place the cursor on the element with lines to be shown, and click to select it.

    The lines of this element display in a hidden line style through the overlapping element. To change the hidden line style of the element, access the Object Styles command.

  4. To reverse the effects of this command, click Tools menuRemove Hidden Lines, or on the Tools toolbar, click .
  5. Select the element that will hide the other element.
  6. Select the other element to be hidden.

Thanks for your help.

The other issue with hidden lines that I have is to display the face of wall below a wall sweep (on a wide wall cap for example.)  Using the Show Hidden Lines command does not work because you cannot select only the sweep in plan view.  Any tricks for this would be greatly appreciated.

I apologize for not looking at the help menu first.  I imagine that taking time out of someone else's busy schedule to answer a question that is in the help file must be very annoying.  I should of searched at length through the help file myself instead of bothering someone else.  For this I am truly sorry.
