is there a "hidden line" view option in inventor 2013?

In solidworks there's a "hidden line" option that displays a 3d part with all its sketch lines (instead of a regular solid) which allows the user to view all the different sides of the part easily. So I was wondering if there's such an option in autodesk inventor 2013. Currently, to view all the different sides and aspects of a part easily, i have been changing the part's material to polycarbone or some other plastic material; this makes the part a little translucent. But this is less effective than the hidden line vew availble in solidworks. do you guys know of any other method  that makes different parts of a 3d part more easily to be viewed? 

View tab, appearance panel, change to 'shaded with hidden edges'.

 

If you want this changed for good, go to app options, display tab and select use application settings, then edit the setting s to use shaded with hidden edges. Or change the document settings of your template instead (however other users might not want this change).
