Hello petrxn,

 

  Would it be a general button as shown in the mock-up below?

Hello,

no, I mean view of assembly.

Let's have drawing view of assembly and there are shown some bended plates and we need to show tangent lines only of one of them.

 

Best regards

Petr

This project [US14390] is under review by the development team.

Totally agree. At present I sometimes have to sketch lines in to represent the flanges of steel channels from Content Center that have no sharp edge. It's either that or switch them on globally which can clutter the view.

While this is valuable, we really need a global setting as well in the drawing view styles.
