Electrical annotation transparency

You can see my disconnect switches creates a line gap on the HVAC equipment they attaches to.  Is there something I can change to make it transparent?

 

Or can I do wireframe selectively?  Just the HVAC on wireframe view?

The source of this behavior is under Mechanical Settings » Hidden Line. You can either disable "Draw MEP Hidden Lines" or set the gap sizes to 0.

 

The above is a Project-wide effect, though. You can eliminate this per View by setting the Visual Style to Wireframe, but you cannot assign a Visual Style to a specific Category. You could also change the View's Discipline to Coordination to prevent Revit from creating these gaps.

Thank you.  I guess I have to live with this limitation.

In this particular view, you could turn your Mechanical Equipment to transparent, that may clear up some of the issues.
