    no plot lines

    Is there any way to create a no plot line in Revit 2018?

    Quick answer, No.
    Revit is WYSIWYG. If you see it on the screen, it'll plot.
    That said, there are a couple of exceptions and an Add-In that could help.
    The exceptions are Reference Planes and View references (Elevations & Sections) that are not on a Sheet. But I doubt that's what you're asking for.
    To quote Chad in this thread:

      You can make a linestyle that you turn off with a view template for example in the view you want to print.
      Revit is 'what you see is what you get', so a none printable line would be invisible in the view you are printing.

      [edit]
      LOL, looks like great minds think allike

        Make the no-plot line plotted as a white line. You'll never see it on white paper

          But then you won't see them in Revit either, right?

              I use a very very light line that plots but isn't really noticeable if it's small. I only use for special cases like needing to dimension to something that you can't normally. Otherwise, that's what additional views are for, ie "working" views.

                Go bold. Draw on a hot pink background

                  Think I did that once in AUtoCAD for a co-worker during April fools or something.
