    warped slab and WYSIWYG printing issue

    Revit 2019

    I have an existing slab (exterior sidewalk) that has lots of different high and low points. This results in "bend" lines. I can overwrite the bend lines with the linework tool to get them to disappear. And the slab looks clean for our purposes.

    However, when I plot to .pdf, all the bend lines appear. The WYSISYG feature of Revit is neglected for these views.

    Any ideas on how to get the bend lines to go away in my .pdf plot?

    I'm guessing you're using invisble lines with the linework tool?
    Do you have shadows on?
    Have you tried turning off interior edges instead?

    Thanks Elton.
    Yes, invisible lines with the linework tool.
    Shadows off.
    Interior Edges helped a bit, but now I have bits and pieces that still show up:

    The linework tool may have to be applied twice. Once for the fold on the top face of the floor element, and a second time for the fold on the bottom face of the floor element.

    That makes sense. Thanks.

    ...
    (and though I'm responding to Tony, this next comment is not to Tony, specifically; it's more an whine/complaint to the developers)
    This still doesn't address the WYSIWYG feature. In my Revit views, I don't see the bend lines. So, why are they still showing when I plot to .pdf? Turning off interior edges, and applying invisible lines with the linework tool, I no longer see any bend lines in my slab. Yet, when I plot, bits and pieces (that I can't see in the view to DOUBLE apply the linework tool to) are still visible! Ugh!
