3D hinge direction markers don't display in hidden line mode


Recommended Posts



How can I make window hinge markers visible in hidden line viewports? I want them to be visible in elevation, but they don't display in any of my viewports.




I have ticked Show Interior and Exterior Hinge Markers in the object settings. The hinge marker class is also turned on in the viewports. 


When I look at my model in 3D wireframe mode the hinge markers are visible but as soon as I switch to hidden line mode they disappear. They disappear both on the interior and the exterior side. Same thing happens with the window preview when I try to edit the window settings. Surely there must be a way to display the hinge markers in elevations (hidden line viewports). 


Alternatively, is there any other render mode I can use for my viewports to get a decent line drawing elevation?

I'm having the same problem in VW 2021. Door Hinge Markers not showing in any Interior elevation viewports & section viewports in hidden line mode. The markers do display in the design layer in all modes and they display fine in exterior elevation viewports.
