See below for typical examples of the ways showing edge chamfers.
In this example, Part representation is Exact and Edge chamfers are on. Background color
is used in edge chamfer lines, because you usually do not want to show edge chamfers in

associative notes.

In this second example, Part representation is Outline and Edge chamfers are on.
Background color is used in edge chamfer lines, because you may want to see and select
chamfers in the drawing, for example, to add associative notes.This representation is often
used when the scale is small and you do not need to see the small chamfers clearly. The edge
chamfer presented in the bottom right corner of the image shows what the edge chamfer
looks like when it is selected.
