Show Existing Overhead Roof as Dashed on Floor Plan

Anonymous
Not applicable
I feel like I'm missing something really simple here - Is it possible to show an existing (overhead) roofline as dashed on a ground floor plan? I am finding it is shown as solid unless I set its Renovation Status to New.... Do I need to use Graphic Overrides?
Cheers for any help!

Would be good to know which ARCHICAD version you are using, but generally, you can do this in the last several versions for sure.
In the "Floor Plan and Section" panel of the Roof Settings Dialog, there are Pen and Line Type settings for both Uncut Lines (lines below the Floor Plan Cut Plane) and Overhead Lines. But for Overhead Line Type and Pen settings fields to be displayed in the Settings Dialog, make sure that the "Floor Plan Display" field is set to either "Projected with Overhead" or "Overhead All".

Thanks so much for your fast reply Laszlo! I actually had all of those things set already..just realized I had an override set for Planned Status. Sorry to bother you, but you have helped my understanding of the roof settings also - I'm very grateful!
