Hi Haytham,
You can try this.
Shorten parts view by view
You can shorten parts in the selected view in an open drawing. By default, there is only an empty area shown between the parts, but you can use a shortening symbol instead, and adjust the shortening symbol color and line type.
Double-click a drawing view frame in an open drawing.
In View properties , go to the Attributes 2 tab.
In Cut parts , select Yes , Only in x direction or Only in y direction.
In Cut skew parts , select Yes to cut skewed parts.
In Minimum cut part length , set the minimum length of the shortened part.
This option defines how long the part must at least be to get shortened. The length of the part must be at least twice the entered value.
In Space between cut parts , enter the distance between the cut parts on paper.
Click Modify.
