The Linework tool does not create new model or detail lines in the view. Instead, it overrides the current line style of the selected line and applies a different line style.
You can use the Linework tool to change the line style of
- Projection edges of model elements, including silhouette edges and projection edges caused by plan regions
Red linework applied to projection edges of a roof
- Cut edges of model elements
Blue linework applied to cut edges of a window
- Edges in imported CAD files
- Edges in linkedRevit files.
NoteYou cannot use the Linework tool to modify the line style of a dimension line or any other annotation line.
