i'm having the same problem. i created a new exploded view (Exp0001), exploded all the parts, and then drew all the exploded view lines.
i went into my drawing, created a new view and checked the "exploded view" box. i got the view i wanted, looks great, but there's no option for exploded view lines.
i went back to my assembly, exploded it, and no lines are visible. if I go into view manager, i can't select the exploded view lines to edit or delete them. there are a bunch of offset lines listed in the Family Tree, but clicking on them and hiding / unhiding does nothing.
i'm guessing this is another glitch in Pro
i don't see how this program, which has been out for a while, has so many bugs. i don't remember ever having this many problems with SolidWorks 2001. the explode options in that were so nice, with individual steps and everything.
even the exploded view lines are tedious in ProE and still don't look right. they dont zig-zag, but make angles and other crap.
The problem here is that there are 2 different menus!
oneworks and the other does'nt!
Try this! Use VIEW - VIEW MANAGER-"
click on the explode tab and double click on your exploded name AND SET ACTIVE!
Then click on EDIT-REDIFINE!
You will get a menu that has Position - Expld Status - Offset lines as choices.
If you create your offset lines with this menu they will show on the drawing.
The only way to turn them of and on is to put them ina layer and turn the layer off and on in the view in drawing mode!
Let me know how this works.
Heres another trick I learned. When you want to position you components using this same menu - Position - translate. then use the (assy)CSO for motion reference works great, Then you can pick the part you want to move from the model tree.
i'm going to have to re-do the lines, but at least this new menu shows me how to create better offset lines and modify them.
why does ProE even allow us to create lines in the view manager if they don't show up? i'll have to remember to edit my explosions using the redefine menu within the view manager rather than the view manager buttons.
now, lets open my drawing and see if i can get these offset lines to show up.
