I'm currently using ProE 2001. I'm doing a detailed dwg. that shows the cosmetic theads, and I want to hide them justwithin the dwg. but keep them visible within the model. Please help. Edited by: 93Civic_hb
Another easy way to do this is by going to show/erase. I think it is the lower left button you select for cosmetic threads.<?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" />
I have not yet found how to easily control layers in WF2.0. However, previous to WF it is very easy to control cosmetics,surfaces, and a slew of other things either by drawing or view. A dropdown, I think defaulting to drawing, can be used to select different layer control options. One option is view. I prefer to have as few views as possible different from the drawing. When you select "by view", all views will be highlighted by a green or blue box. Blue is controlled by drawing layer preference and green by view layer preferences. You can switch individual view layer control preferences back to drawing layer control by selecting the view and then selecting the button that looks like a chain link.
If I close the layer to hide the thread, I can open the layer to show the thread. However, if I use "show / erase"command "erase cosmetic feature" to hide the thread, I find the "show cosmetic feature" buttonis gray and I can't use it.
The first time you go to show/erase in a drawing, "Show" is not a valid choice for cosmetic threads and is therefore grayed out. I believe this is so because they are all shown by default. However, once a thread is erased, "show" does become a valid option. In short, yes, you can reshow cosmetic threads with show/erase. If you couldn't it wouldn't be of much use.
I tried many times and have the finding. Ever you erase all or some threads, the "cosmetic feature" is always valid. But there's an option "with preview", don't use it and you can find the "cosmetic feature" works.
