Presently any Assembly of groups that we detail is showing hidden lines irrespective of detailstyle settings.
We are able to control the viewing of hidden lines in single parts and groups via the detailstyle settngs, but with Assemblies we are not able to turn off hidden lines although it is set to not show in the detailstyle.
Assemblies (a collection of groups) is new to us and the complexity of the Assembly means we must not show hidden lines, how is this possible?
Hello, Thanks for posting your query over the Bentley Communities Forum. In response to your query, can you please add a screenshot of this, highlighting the area of the issue so that we can get a better understanding of your requirement. Regards, Alistair Lobo
Also it would be better, if you can share one sample model having Assembly.There are two options for sharing your model files on BE Communities. If you would like the files to be visible to other members, compress the files into a zip file and upload them as an attachment via insert. If your data is confidential, you can follow the instructions in the link below to send it to us via Bentley Sharefile. Files uploaded to Sharefile can only be viewed by Bentley.communities.bentley.com/.../bentleysecurefilesupload.aspxIf you upload the model files to Sharefile, please post a message here so we know they are available.

where are you setting the hidden lines? Setting under 2D Display > Common > hidden edges should control it
Thanks Mike for your answer here.
Below is a screen shot, it shows a preview of an assembly (not a group) as seen by the assembly icon showing in the bottom left of the preview. Also shown is the hidden lines turned off yet still showing (seen as yellow- i should have adjusted ltscale for the screenshot)
I can't tell from Mikes's screenshot if this is an assembly or a group, not showing hidden lines works fine when showing groups or single parts, it is just assemblies that are not working.
I must stress that although we have been using Prosteel for over 15 years now, this is the first time we have the need for Assemblies, so there must be something we are missing about the process.
If there are no other options for hiding hidden lines, then I will follow up with some files.
