I'm drawing a blank for how to show multiple linetypes in floor plans for a complex profile. For example, I have a T-footing beam with a mudsill. I'd like to show the stemwall as solid lines, the footing as dashed, and the mudsill not at all. Or, say, a structural beam with crown molding on both sides. In a floor plan, I'd really like to see just the beam with the crown moldings invisible. Is this even possible?
Not possible... Pretty sure there is a wish for this somewhere, though I have been unable to find it...

You could try setting your FPCH to cut your stem as done in the following. That will get you two linetypes if everything is flat...

Thanks for confirming this. I've used this FPCP solution in the past, but it doesn't really work where the footing steps down a hillside. I guess the thing to do is to go back to two-piece foundations. (i.e. the stemwall and footing are separate.)
