Click the Special Hidden Line menu item next to get the dialog shown below and make invisible lines dashed. Rebuild the section, and hidden lines (within the section depth) will show up as dashed now.
It even 'understands' the new 'distant' area and will use the 'distant' pen to mark distant hidden objects with that pen color - and the line type chosen in the dialog below.
AFAIK, special menu settings do not get memorized with views, so linking to views that require these special lines - or even publishing such views - would not be very automatic. Perhaps the wish should be that GS implement these options as full-fledged display options that are memorized with views rather than leave them hidden in the special menu.

Can someone post the process to make the Special Menu visible for a Mac OS X user. I was able to get this done using OS 9. But now that I have OS X. I cannot find the right method to turn on the menu. Can anyone help out?
