    My dashed lines disappeared!

      they are not showing on my drawing view. Also as soon as I exit my sketch they disappear. Any tips? I manually made all lines dashed by changing their line type.

          I shouldn't have said disappear, what I meant was they changed into solid lines.

            Hi Chelsea,

             

            When you exit a sketch your lines will all revert back to solid.

            Since you haven't created any bodies you won't see any dashed lines. Once you create bodies from your sketches any "hidden" bodies will show as dashed lines if your display style is set to "hidden lines visible" which is the way it is set in your file.

            If I could make a suggestion.

            Instead of making one big sketch the way you have, model each of the parts individually then bring them into an assembly. It will make your life a lot easier.

            Hope this helps.

            Tony
