Hiding individual sides of a fill outline

I wish we could hide individual or multiple sides of a fill the same way you can when you're editing a complex profile. This would be preferable to drawing a fill with no outline and then using lines or polylines where needed.

You can disable all outline by this option or keep and make it transparent:

Right. But I want to be able to edit each side individually.

Yes, you’re right.

Vectorworks does this.

It boggles my mind why in Archicad you still can't do it. (....in 2022, no less)

 

Not just hiding individual sides, but actually changing the display properties (line type, line colour,  line thickness,....etc.)

I mean, you can do it with slabs where you edit a a slab edge to give it custom properties different from other edges. And those are 3D elements.

You can even do it with a fill defining a complex profile.

 

But then with a regular fill you use for drawing or basic drafting, you can't.

 

Seems odd, if you ask me.

 

So for example you can't use a Fill to create a simple clean "ground line" in an Elevation or Section window, with all edges hidden, but a selected edge as the "ground" with extra thickness, in cases where you don't have a mesh to do this (or it's not doing it correctly)
