While using SW 2012 x64, I'm trying to hide the boundary of the Detail View. Turning off the "Full Outline" check box only works for boundary edges that are not cutting the part (See Detail C). I tried using a Layer, not working.
I've been wrong here several times in the last few days, but I'm pretty sure you can't hide that.
Well, there is this solution: https://forum.solidworks.com/message/142153#142153 I haven't tried this in awhile. I don't remember if it applies to the portion of the circle that cuts across geometry.
Thanks, but this only seems to be possible in older versions of SW. The Line Font dialog doesn't have a Detail Circle selection.
The workflow mentioned in that link still applies/works in SW2014.
OK, I got it to work, but then all Detail View borders are off. Even selecting "Full Outline". Then I tried the Layer option, but there aren't separate Layers for Circle and Border (see PNG). Thanks for the help, but I won't be using this one.
This is understandable. I was offering this as a workaround for now. There are several SPRs that are currently covering this topic from various perspectives. I invite you to goto your customer portal in the Enhancment Requests area and search for the keywords hide detail circle and vote for the ones that you feel suit your needs. This will help rise us track overall requests for this need.
That method in the thread you referenced works great if you are printing the drawing. It does not work when you save the drawing as a pdf. And for me that is critical, because all the drawings that I work with have to be saved as pdfs.
use "crop view"
