I've modeled welds into my assembly using the Weld Application, and I would like the associated symbols to appear in the drawing I've created for it, however I don't want the weld surface features to appear in the drawing. Currently I'm getting the opposite, with weld's surface features in the drawing with no weld symbols. I've tried to play around with the layer tree to fix this problem, but I've been striking out with it. Any suggestions?
You can also right-click cycle through the selections but the first selection may be the weld along with the annotation...just keep cycling through until it highlights just the surface. But the easiest is to change the selection filter to quilts.
Another alternative would be to change the weld feature representation to "light". But that probably defeats what you are trying to do.
I've found it useful to set the def_layer for weld features so that it places all weld annotations and features into a layer. If my memory serves me well, it doesn't separate the annotation from the quilt. Might be worth looking into.
Oh, and don't forget to set HLR for quilts in the properties of your views so they will actually be hidden:
View Properties --> View Display --> Hidden Line Removal For Quilts: Yes.
