Can I hide MEP Hidden Lines with a weight, color, or pattern override? As far as I know, "Draw MEP Hidden Lines" is a global setting. There should be a way to hide certain lines with some sort of view filter. Isn't there such a thing as a line that won't plot? I can't seem to find it, or create one.
There is an "invisible lines" within families. Lines arent included in filters. I guess you could create your own linestyle and uncheck the visibility under visibility/graphic overrides of the view and/or view template.
Detail lines are view based so you could have a working view and a plotting view.
VG to turn off or set up a View Template.
Or if you plot greyscale/colour you could try using a light grey which would be near invisible when plotted.
Personally I have avoided having unnecessary lines on drawings and on the occaation I have needed to use a detail line for such an instance I delete imediately.
It's Revit 2013 and there is still no way to draw invisible lines in a Project or create other non-printable elements (i.e. text). Are you aiming to accomplish a specific task? There are many work-around methods at our disposal that might be of use!
Thanks for the respones. My task is to make money while using the Revit platform. I'm in the mass-production side of the business. I need a template that can be used over and over. I need "notes to Designer" and lines that don't plot, as tools that speed up the production process.
I tried making my own line syle and turning it off in the view. Why is there a "no color" button in line styles? It just comes out black.The global setting keeps hidden lines on no matter what.
The second screen cap is a family that has connectors under an extrusion. I know I can just put in masking regions, but that's a hassle. Can I make the extrusion opaque, in the family editor?
