When actually attempting to use lineweights I use the line work tool.  Is this correct?

Also if I were to change my wall lines to 'Wide Lines' then the line is brought to the front.  Meaning you can now see the entire wall when part of it should be hidden behind the roof overhang.  Before I used the tool it was behind the roof.  Any ideas?

Also is there a way to edit this list on the 'Line Work' tool?  I am curious how I can edit and add our own line weights via office standards.  Does anyone have a template file I can have to get me started in the right direction and I can edit accordingly?  Thanks

Any time you use the linework tool, the entire line will be visible regardless of wether or not it is hidden.  That is just how that tool works.  If you need your walls lines to change in all views, you should edit the linetype in Object Styles.  Also, if this is the only view that you want the lines to change in, or if you want only one wall to change in appearance, then you should consider using Overide Graphics in View.  To do this, select on the object (ie the wall) then right-click and select Overide Grasphic> By Element or By Category.  Then you will get a dialog box that allows you to change the line properties for cut and projection lines and surface and cut patterns.  This is probably the best  way to edit the look of an object in just 1 or a few views.

Hope this helps
