Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Linework tool, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
So far in this chapter we've seen global objects style settings and view specific…over writable the category and the object level.…Sometimes none of these methods is sufficient to get just the right graphical…treatment in a particular drawing. In such situations we have the Linework…tool, our last line of defense if you will.…With this tool we can actually modify the individual edges that make up an element…and vary them as required. For example, we could make one side of a…wall bolder, or we could change the roof overhang to a dash line in certain areas…of the plan. The Linework tool can be just what you…need to add that finishing touch to your work.…
But please remember to use it sparingly. So I'm in a file called Linework, and I'm…in the level two floor plan. And I'm going to zoom in over here in this…area above the lobby, and you'll see that I've got this open to below space, that's…the lobby space down on the first floor, and then over here is a floor slab.…Which provides a balcony space looking down into the lobby space.…

Q: Is this course valid for all of the Revit architecture products? Are there any movies in this course that do not work in Revit LT?
A: This course is designed to work for anybody learning any of the Revit architecture products, including Autodesk Revit (available as part of the "Autodesk Building Design Suite"product), Autodesk Revit Architecture, and Autodesk Revit LT.
However, some individual movies in the course are not valid in Revit LT, due to the limited feature set of that application. Those movies are:
Chapter 3 - Accessing multi-user worksharing projects
Chapter 5 - Establishing shared coordinates
Chapter 6 - Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof
Chapter 7 - Working with stairs
