This is probably a question with a simple answer that I haven't found the answer to. I want to be able to hide a part of an assembly in one projected view of the 2d drawing but not all, however when I do so the hidden lines stay hidden lines. They do not change. I know you can change the hidden line properties to make them continuous lines but is there a setting that will allow these lines to change automatically?

umm..something else must be wrong. When you remove the visibilty of a part that was over other parts the hidden lines will change to continuous lines automatically. What version of Inventor are you using?
Hi! Please attach the model file (ipt or iam) too. IDW file is not enough to see the drawing views.
1 part and 1 idw is not enough to show the problem.. You need to attach an iam and all the ipts in that plus the idw and a screen shot would be nice too showing the issue. I suggest you zip up all the parts/iam/idw/screenshot and post that.
For your reference an idw (or iam) is simply a file with links/references to all the files in it.. they are not included in the idw (or iam) file itself. So for example if you have a problem with an iam file you need to include that iam file plus all the ipts in it.
I assumed the original state of base view shows in the attached image.
1. Please right-click the component in browser which you want to hide in the view.
2. Select "Select as Edges" in context menu
3. Right-click the highlight edges in view, select "Visibility"
You will see all the project edges from the selected component will be invisible. When the invisible edges are expected to show, please right-click the view then select "Show hidden edges", and right-click the highlight edges in view to select "Show All" in context menu.
An easy way to hide a part is,
1. Select the part node on browser under the projected view
2. Uncheck "Visibility"
