How can I show threads on a Inventor drawing without shading the view?

What is the technique for showing threads on a Inventor drawing? I have an model with the 3D threads shown but when I switch over to the drawing there are no threads shown. I DO NOT want to shade the views.

I activated the Thread Display toggle button in Edit View but still nothing...not even dashed lines or cosmetic threads such as SolidWorks has.

It should show the hidden lines on the shaft..
Even without having to turn on the thread display toggle
for parts..Assemblies you need to turn that option on.

Sounds like you may have a graphics problem if they are not showing up upon base view placement.

Is it an ISO view or idw of an ipn?

If so then no. At least not with IV10

It's a .idw of an .ipn.
Can I at least show threads of a .ipt on a .idw?

Yes but not in an ISO view.

That's not good for the assemblers out on the floor that need to see parts as they really are. I will see if SolidWorks can do it tonight just for s**ts and giggles.

This is a personal pet peeve of mine, as I do a lot of iso views
