Blind hole doesn't show on drawing, but through-hole does

Very new user here...

I have a very simple drawing: https://cad.onshape.com/documents/1849e6789feb761f77f87f92/w/58db8db983d705c0861b42c4/e/5ba48b7caa4a483dabbf9e59 

I made a blind, tapped hole using a mating connector for location on the curved surface and it doesn't show on the drawing.
However, if I change it to a through hole, it is shown correctly.

Is this user error, parameter setting, bug or what?
I searched the forum and training files...can't find anything related to this.

Thanks for any comments in advance,

(Edit: I missed that I need to select a suitable category *before* generating the question. Sorry, I can't seem to find a way to change it.)

    OK, I kind of found it: First I needed to open the special menu for the drawing view (not a left or right click, but a double finger tap in the drawing box which took a little time to find as I'm a new user), then show hidden lines.

    Thanks, John. All is good now. On the Mac, it seems the default pad set up is for a two-finger-at-the-same-time tap (I called it double finger tap which is not clear) = right click. I'm using a mouse, now, anyway.
