    Default Lineweight

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I am trying to control the line weight of some line and text objects in a drawing. I am using the acLnWtXXX command. It works fine when I use the line weight of .30 (acLnWt030) but then if I use .25 the line becomes really thin and stays that way for a few increments down. Am I doing something wrong or is this a program error?

    Whilst you can change the line weight is it still simpler to just use colour = penweight ?

    Our civil drawings generaly only have about 5 pen weights thin to thickest. Text thickness is handled by the Font used Standard = thin, Arial is bold. we have three plot settings a thin version for up to A3 and a thicker set for A1 The first two are genearlly black & white the third is a colour pen table. Dont need to change line thickness's as its handled by the pen tables. If we want real fat lines use polylines then independant of line thickness again.
