portions of walls above the cut plane don't show up as dashed lines

Hi!

 

I am trying to find how to draw portions of a wall
that are above the cut plane as dashed lines.  A wall has been punched with
the edit profile tool to create a "door". However, a structural beam is passing
above that section and I'd like to draw it as dashed lines in the plan
view.

 

(see illustration attached for clearer
description)

 

I experimented with the view ranges and graphics
override but I can't seem to find the right combination.  Some help or
pointers would appreciated!

 

Thanks in advance,

This may be a simple thought but why not draw in the dashed lines you need to see as detail lines?

Do your dashed detail lines move when the model walls move?

They will move with the model only if you align and lock them to something in the model.
