    Default Dashed (Hidden) Lines in Family Editor

    Hello All

    This may be simple, but i don't know how to draw model lines in the family editor and make them show up dashed '<hidden>'. I have made a complex kitchen model, and was hoping to draw the dahed model lines on the doors to show the swing direction in elevation view. I know i could easily draw these after i import the family into the project, but i am curious to see if there is a way to do so in the family model itself so they will show up automatically when i import the family. Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes. Use the symbolic line - Elevation Swing Projection from the Casework template.

    Ah, i see. For anyone who has a similar problem you just have to create an Object Style by going to Settings> Object Styles, then creating a new one, in this case called Door Swing Elevation, and then set the line pattern to dash. Thanks for the help everyone.
