    Default Lineweight when publishing as TIFF file

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    AutoCAD 2016


    Right now we pdf (and it looks great), then we saveas a TIFF file. PDF lineweights look good, and so do the new TIFF lineweights.


    We are trying to publish straight to a TIFF file, but are lineweights are to fine.


    I've tried going into the imported "page setup" file and changing the lineweight in the page setup manager's "plot style table", but that did nothing.


    Any suggestions?

    We publish to TIFF direct basicly had to redo the CTB table with thicker lines, as tiff's are controlled by the DPI so line thickness' tends to go thin.

    Thanks. This gave me some place to start. Got it to work in plot, but I'm still working on how to accomplish this when publishing. Doesn't seem to be taking the CTB from the imported file. Any hints?

    I dont use publish rather a lisp and plot. You may need to set up the 1st sheet with correct parameters save its setting say as "TIFF" (plot screen top left) then in publish copy this setting to all sheets.
