When I convert a part to a drawing, Solidworks inserts a ton of dashed lines where I used a linear pattern.
I cannot figure out how to get rid of these dashed lines on the drawing. How can I hide or disable them?
Select one of the lines. It's actually a centermark. In the property mgr there are options near the top to change whether they use extended lines.
If you don't want those in the future, de-select the bottom option shown below at Tools > Options > Document Properties > Detailing before inserting the drawing view. If you don't want the center marks at all de-select the top option. If you want those settings for all future drawings, then make that change in your drawing template so you don't need to do it every time you start a new drawing..
