Part Lines in IDW

I had a sketch in one of my views of a planned piece of equipment.  I hatched the equipment to show where it would be placed on my shaded views.  The part outlines behind the sketch were visible through the hatch.  I turned the visibility off of the part lines once I was finished with the sketch, everything is OK.  

 

Now that the proposed piece of equipment is no longer going to be used, I removed the sketch from the view, but my part lines are missing, making the view look a little odd. See below.  One side of my filter (gold part) has the outlines visible, the other side shows up without the lines.

 

After removing visible lines, is there a way to turn them back on again??

Yes there is right click in the view you should have an option to show hidden edges click on that then select the lines again like when you shut them off..

If I had known I could retrieve my lines back again, it would have saved me a ton of work over the last few years!   I never thought to question it, so thanks for asking the question in the first place and thanks to Mr. Fletcher for such a very simple solution.
