Line Drawing Editor---showing hidden lines

Postby DarrelMWood » Thu, May 29 2008, 4:37PM

Has anyone had this problem?
In line drawing editor, when it is printed (or print preview), it will print lines that are "hidden"---for example, if you're looking at the top elevation, and there are dadoes or rabbets on the underside, it will print those dado lines. It won't show in the line drawing editor, just in the print preview and print. I've attached a simple "job" of one small frameless cabinet. The top elevation (on page 3 of the line drawings), which is the whole cab rotated, doesn't show the back, which is rabbeted into the top. When you go to print that line is shown, making the drawing confusing for my guys.
To make things weirder, on my laptop the print preview does not show that hidden rabbet, but it shows up on the final print.

As a follow up---this also has happened to me when I've done a face frame elevation when I have dadoes in the back of the face frame. When I go to print the elevation, it shows the dado lines from the back on the print (but not in the line editor itself)

Darrel,

At the top in the line drawing editor, there is a button to change the line enhancement. Turning this down to 1 gets rid of the dado lines. Makes drawings a lot less confusing.
