I have exterior trim profiles on a project that is quite detailed; a couple of curves and overlaps of material. When generating the elevation at 1/4" scale the trim comes out as almost a solid line due to the number of changes in the face of the trim profile. Is there any way to delete (or lighten with a different pen number) the in lines in the face of the trim profile in elevation, other than the global elevation setting for uncut elements.
Thanks. (V23)

This can happen if you drew the curves for a complex profile using the Magic Wand rather than arcs. If so, you might try redrawing the profile with arcs. Or, you might consider selecting the trim and converting to Morphs, which gives you more control over the display of curved edges.
