override system graphic overrides with a view setting?

Just wondering if anyone knows of a workaround to override system graphic overrides, other than selecting each element? For example, I have the cold water piping system set to use a dash dot line type, which works great for 1 line piping. However, in piping sections with 2 line piping and high detail, the dash dot linetypes just get confusing. It also looks bad when connected fixtures becomes dashed. Is there a way around this?

do you want to have dashed lines only to main pipes and not fittings?

 

If yes you can fo this using visibility graphics>filters>Edit/New and create or modify your filter in a way that in the categories section only the pipes are selected not the fittings and accessories

 

Cheers,

There was definitely a reason I switched from using filters to using the system level overrides, but I can't remember what it was now. I think maybe it was just easier than setting up the filters in every new view and section cut. If that's how everyone else does it, I guess I'll go back to using filters on the next project. Thanks.
