I run into this a lot with cylindrical objects. The last time my VAR came into town he was baffled about it too. We did notice that when you use the Line Format Toolbar it tends to work more often. I believe he started a SPR on this but I don't remember the number, I will ask him. For now try using the Hide/Show lines command that is on the Line Format Toolbar.
I'm running XP 64 SW 2010 sp 2.1. What are you running? I'll let my Var know that I am not the only one with the problem.
You might also try the Select Other tool (right-click on the line) and see how many lines you have under that one. I've noticed that sometimes you can just keep hiding it and eventually it will disappear and then sometimes you have to use the Select Other and pick each individual line separately to hide.
Have you got to the bottom of this problem. As i am having the same problem
It happens regularly for me too. But I do CTRL Q and the display then updates.
Tom, you are lucky that the ctrl Q resolves it. I get this and I can't get rid of the line
to save my life. Sometimes it is a case where there are multiple lines over the top
of each other and then it disapears. But I get those that no matter how many times
I select it, it just doesn't go away. And I am on 2011 SP 3.0 , but I have experienced this
with 2010 as well.
Thanks Tom this has worked
I see this post is quite old, but here's additional information about this issue that I just discovered.
On my installation of SW, I cannot hide any lines in a drawing view if the display style is set to wireframe. I can, however, hide lines if the display style is set to Hidden Lines Visible.
If you are having issues hiding lines in your drawings, try changing the display style to something other than your current setting. If you do not like the look of the lines in the new style (because they are dashed, or not, or for some other reason), you can play around with the line styles in Tools>Options>Document Properties, under "line font" and/or "line style".
