Hello -- I have a large assembly drawing with about 80 components in it. One of these is a tightly coiled spring. In the model, the 'centerline' of the wire that coils into the spring shape does NOT show. However, in drafting view suddenly it appears. I cannot select it or right click on it. The only way to make it go away is to hide "curves" under "Show and Hide", but this hides ALL the curves, even when I make that spring the work part. (This is not an ideal solution anyway, as it hides all the curves of the spring, not just the centerline.) I'm at a loss as to how to get this to disappear -- I am used to Solidworks' ability to access pretty much everything from the feature tree. Guidance would be great!
