The only problem with turning off the invisible walls layer in the Display Options is I still need the invisible walls for the porches to show up in the floorplan.  I'm trying to isolate this particular invisible wall.

 

It's really helpful to include info like this when you ask a question. 

 

I'd use a mask to cover the wall.

Change the line style to "blank" in the default for the walls you don't want to show. When you open up the line styles, you will see one row that has nothing in it.

 

I believe the dashed lines are controlled by the Layer. Even if you set a wall to have all blank lines, you still get the dashed lines when you make it invisible.

 

In Chief, you can place the wall on a unique layer and control the lines, setting them to blank and the wall will not show.

No, I didn't try it, and Eric is correct. I would do the mask on the plan sheet using a polyline and making the lines blank and the infill white. When it's put on the layout, it may creat a blank area for any other pages put over that area. Invisible walls used to work nicely when they were just a single line.

Thanks Eric.  Does Chief Architect have more layer control so that I can have text on different layers as well as CAD lines on different layers?

 

You can create new Layers and Layer Sets, and you can place anything on any layer. It's one of the biggest features missing from Pro.

 

Chief also has Plan Views. So when you switch to your Electrical Plan View, you are using the Electrical Layer Set which puts text on the Text, Electrical layer, and CAD on the CAD, Electrical layer. And all these setting are configurable.

 

It's a lot to learn, and it's a lot more expensive, but it makes doing plan sets easier.
