Am trying to create a simple line drawing roof plan showing interior walls. Viewing floor plan in roof mode shows what I am looking for except I want to turn off roof shading hatch. When I print the interior walls disappear. How do I get interior walls to display and also turn off the roof hatch / shading?

turn off "Show Polygon Shading" and turn on Wall (non-bearing) under Mode Visibilities -> Roof

Thanks Denis,

Getting there but non load bearing walls still hidden even after selecting to display as in your screenshot.

If your drawing is using the "Custom Drawing Mode" then you need to make the change under drawing options instead of Project Options

Using "overlay" works for me.

In Drawing options> material dimensions> roof options> on the lower right there is a check box for "include walls" under 'generate drawing'. The shading will go away once you generate the "elevation" drawing of the roof.

Was able to get my engineer going with showing just load bearing walls. Will have to fiddle with all your suggestions later after deadline.
