I am using 2013 and my construction surfaces keep displaying in my drawing views.  They are hidden at part and assembly level and include surfaces is greyed out but they show as visible in the feature tree in the idw, and in the views.


Is there a setting somewhere to stop this.

Don't you have an option to RC on the suface body and turn off the visibility in the drawing?

Hi  stevec781,


Is it possible that the surfaces are turned off in a specific View Representation in the model, and that the drawing view is referencing a different View Representation, such as the Master View Representation?


I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
