Is there an easier way to show a few Hidden Lines other than showing them
all,

............ and then selecting the hundreds of lines that you do not want
to see

.........................................and turning the Visibility off on
them?

Any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks, jw

Sorry Jim, but there is a way of doing pretty much what Jeff is looking for. Right click on your view in the browser and select "Show Components". Notice the "+" sign now in the browser tree. Expand the "+" sign to show all the parts that are shown in the view. Now you can select the parts you don't want to see, right click, and turn off the visability. After the view cleans up most of what you did not want to see will be hidden in the views. Mike@RTSWright

or if in an assembly, Shift-RMB, select Part
Priority and then you can select groups of hidden lines representing a part then
RMB to uncheck visibility. Conversely, if your view is of a part and not an
assembly, Shift-RMB and select Feature Priority to do the same with
features.
