I guess there is a simple answer to this.

I use the split face tool on my ipt. When i create a idw of this part I want to show the split face line in the drawing. When I initially place the view the line is shown, however when the place view command is finished the line is not shown.

I see nothing obvious in the place view dialog box controlling the visibility of this do i show this line in the view?

You might have to change the lineweight depending on your needs.
