Problem with elevations (Hidden line mode)




I have been experiencing quite annoying issues when publishing my elevations to PDF. It only happens with Hidden Line mode.


The problem is that, although in the VW file the elevation viewport displays correctly, when I publish it to PDF it shows lines from objects that are in the background and therefore shouldn't be displayed, the most common are hinge direction markers from windows and doors. I managed to erase the extra lines by editing the PDF with Adobe Illustrator in the past, but it gets impossible to do it every time I need a PDF set.


I have attached a couple of images, one is a screenshot of the elevation, they way I can see it in sheet layer and the other one is a screenshot of that same elevation after exporting it to PDF. Has anybody come across this issue before? I am using VW2017 with macOS High Sierra, but this happened with previous OS versions.
