Hiding Detail / Worksheet Boundary Line

Hi All,

 

When creating a detail or a worksheet from a floorplan, a dashed boundary line is placed at the marker range boundary. 

I swear I had seen an option in the past to turn this off, but can't find it.  Was I imagining this?

 

I can't even see what settings actually dictate the boundary line being drawn to be able preset it as a white or invisible linetype.

 

We are using worksheet to create room layouts (about 100-200), and the addition of that line is affecting the visual output of the drawing, so needs to be removed (refer snip below).  We currently doing it manually, but it's a massive timesink as it keeps adding it everytime we rebuild from source.

I attempted to use a GO to hide it, but it seems GO's don't actually play properly with details or worksheets. 🤦‍♂️

 

Thanks,

Scott

I never use worksheets or details (very rarely), but I am sure there used to be a setting in the tool to turn that boundary line on or off.

 

Seems now it is in the Work Environment.

Maybe it was there all the time and not actually in the tool settings.

This will affect new worksheets/details that you place.

Existing ones you will have to 're-build from source view'

Thanks so much Barry!

🤦‍  I would say why didn't I think of looking there, but to be honest, it's feel like it's quite an arbitrary location for that setting!

 

I went on a mission to find out when they moved it.  I only have access to workspace back to 15 and the setting is in there.  Maybe I did imagine it...

 

Thanks again! 😊

The reason this setting may be in the Work Environment Dialog is because Archicad program designers felt this is a setting specific to the user rather than a setting specific to the Project. I mean, the Work Environment stores settings the user sets to their own preference and that is how they want it to work in all Projects. If you think about it that way, I would say the Work Environment Dialog is its proper place (even if it is a bit hidden).
