Cosmetic Thread in 2-D drawing

If you use the show/erase toolbar and erase a cosmetic thread, is there a way to show it again? the thread on the "show" menu is grayed out. I have a drawing complete (so starting over isn't an option), just need to re-insert some cosmetic threads.

RE: Cosmetic Thread in 2-D drawing

Solving the Problem of Showing Cosmetics on Drawings You have a drawing with a dozen views. There are some cosmetic features that you have accidentally turned off in these views. You would think it would be a simple task to use the Show/Erase dialog box and turn them back on. No such luck. The detail item button for cosmetic features is grayed out in the show mode. To solve this problem, turn off the preview option in the Show/Erase dialog box. Show cosmetics does not function with preview. To turn preview off, you must select the preview tab from the Show/Erase dialog box, make sure a button other than cosmetic is activated, and un-check the preview box.

How the hell can WF5 lack this functionality??

With the Annotate tab selected you select the view in the drawing tree or the feature in the model tree and the Unerase option should appear in the right mouse menu.
