Summary: - how to get hidden lines on drawing to match those in the plot
Thanks to Andrew, Carol, Dave and Kelly for each having another take and another piece of the puzzle on the hidden line question. I've seen us all having a hidden line display issues since migrating to Pro/E many years ago.
My final solution in this particular instance was to change the hidden line font to one I'd never noticed before, 'PDFHIDDEN_LINES.' Maybe why I like it as my solution is that part of my paradigm is to create a PDF files of documents I've created. I do not know if this line font is included with Pro/E or if it is a custom created line font.
Worthy of mention is a method to see on your screen what will be sent to the plotter. You go thru a routine where you send a print to a printer named 'screen,' it wasn't the solution I was looking for but proved a useful time and paper saving tool. A reasonable person might think it would be the default... having what you saw on your screen match what came out of the plotter.
