    Cosmetic Thread Display Issues

    Tom Fetterolf
      I'm sure I'm overlooking something, but I can't figure this out. Can anyone help?
      When I create a cosmetic thread from an assembly in a drawing view, the representation shows up as solid lines (thin) instead of hidden (dashed). Here's the rundown;

      Insert>Model Items>Cosmetic Thread

      The view is a front view, hidden lines shown.

      In other views on the drawing sheet, where cosmetic threads are visible on individual part details, they show up correctly as dashed lines. The drawing sheet is made up several different part details (separate part files).

      I can't seem to find any control over the cosmetic thread feature other than the usual suspects, Annotation>details.

      I tried to change the line fonts in the active view and nothing happened. Maybe I'm just missing something here.

      Any ideas, anyone?

      p.s. almost forgot, SW2008 SP4.0
