If you want to show a plan of your project with area tags but you don’t want those purple area boundary lines to show, you can turn them off with a Visibility/Graphic Override. The trick is knowing where to find them – they are on the Model Categories tab but they aren’t classified under Areas like you’d expect. Instead, they are found within the Lines category. Just uncheck the box to hide them.
Save time by creating a view template with the boundaries hidden that you can then assign (not apply) to all your area plans. If you need to switch them on and off, you’ll only have to make the change in one place for it to affect all the area plans.
