not quite sure what you're asking but I'll take a stab at it.

make the color of the boundary line white if you don't want to see it, or change the layer and give it whatever lineweight you want.

There is also a blank line style you can use.

 

Huh!  I did not know that!  And sometimes making the boundary white obscures things one doesn't want to obscure.  

 

Cool beans.

Yup, there it is.  Third from the bottom.

 

It's not easy to find Waldo when he's a blank!

it's not very obvious in the line style DBX.   Perhaps it should be better identified.  Essentially an invisible line that remains selectable.  It's kind of like the invisibility cloak in Harry Potter.

 

Very good for ghost walls, like dormer cheek walls

I have been using the blank line for many years now, saves a lot of time.

I have heard that rumor but never took the time to find it.  Please help me out,  where is it?

 

The pic shows that last line styles but I do not see the blank line style.

 Very hard  to find, my third from bottom is a "t" line style.

Never knew that even existed; I thought it was just a break between the dbx sections for some reason. Like Wendy said, I have used a white line for years but often had to go back and edit position because it obscured another line I wanted to see. Cool.

It's in different spots depending on what you are trying to do, look for no line just a space. It's been around for many many versions.

And people say that Chief's Cad tools aren't very good.

Check out this front elevation of the Taj Mahal that I

created using just the basic OOB Cad tools:

Did I mention that I did it all using the invisible line style. ;)

That is a new one to me. I will use it often now.

Never knew that was there, I wonder how long its been around??

 

I'm not sure exactly off the top of my head. But I think we added that circa version 10 maybe before, but it has been there for many versions. Making it more obvious would be good.

Yep, I've been using it for as long as I can remember.  It's great for a lot of things such as CAD Masks, etc.

Agreed.  I've always wondered why it was located in such an odd spot.
