Creo - trying to get cosmetic threads to appear with British Standards

Hi,

 

Once a cosmetic thread is added to say a bolt, I'm having difficulties getting the bolt with cosmetic thread to appear with correct British Standards (ie with the double line to show the location of the thread on the bolt.

 

I work in a school where the course I deliver insists on drawing to British Standards (ie BS 8888). I know some people might be tempted to say just to ignore the standard, but unfortunately I cannot - it's part of the course I deliver. I know I could do it as a helix and therefore have a different shape, but that's not what I am after - the BS drawing standard is what I am looking for.

 

My question is how do I get the bolt to appear with correct British Standards (ie the double line for the thread). Currently the line appears as hidden detail rather than a solid line.

 

I feel like I have tried everything. Perhaps I am missing something obvious.

 

Any suggestions??

 

Thanks in advance

 

Joe
