I've set up our walls to show demo'd walls to be dashed, but I'd also like that dashed line to show up in elevation as well. Is there a way to do this, without moving the wall to a 'demo wall layer'.
I suppose I could edit all the walls so that anything that isn't to be demo'd isn't associated with the layer it's put on (remaining solid vs. dashed); but is there a better way?
I would also love for the siding/ brick, etc. to come in dashed as well if possible.
Made a video to describe what I'm wondering...
I hope the behavior of building the roof using "auto rebuild" is normal Chief behavior - because I have to admit I've never noticed this before today.

Of Course on a deadline and never experienced this in 20 years! HELP! See attached. Working on elevations. Using exactly the same cross section elevation, but one is coming up as "Active Defaults" and one is coming up as "1/4" Defaults", there is not an option for "Active Defaults" in the drop down. Creating havoc on Notes. Have not idea how to fix this. Thanks! Mardie
I noticed small angled lines that are commonly used to indicate glass on drafting drawings on elevations from Chief (see example photo attached). Is there a way to turn those 'ON' with a glass or reflective material? Or are those being added manually?
Thanks for the help!
