Is it possible to hide the 'dashed' current time indicator line in processbook trends? I want to reduce my trend to its absolute minimum: just the trace. I can hide everything else apart from this dashed line.
I think you can remove all the text if you set the text color to none, and it will effectively leave the trend only, which would reduce it to the minimum, but I don't htink you can selectively remove the Dashed time part.

This is what I find.
The only solution I have found is to place a thick line, the same colour as the display background, over the top which is obviously non-optimal in the extreme.
Alistair - that's what we had to do as well, when creating the ProcessBook graphics for this site:

What version of ProcessBook are you using? In PB 3.2 it disappears when you change the Value Axis colour to be the same as the background.
Hehe, seems I was a bit too quick on the trigger there.
You're right Rhys. And that's what we did in the showcase project I linked to.
We did use the trick Alistair said about the thick lines, but we used it to get rid of the lines around the entire trend object. I did go through all the advanced properties of the trend object, but couldn't find a setting which did that for me.
Aha! Yes! I was setting it to 'None' instead. I think this trick is also required for the time axis: if you set its colour to 'None' then the axis disappears but you still get the arrowhead at the end. If you set it to the display background colour then the arrowhead is also gone.
There is a setting that will get rid of the bounding box but I can't remember what it is!
Let me know if you find it
