    Default PDF issues (linetype/weight?)

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I have read a couple posts regarding the problems that Autocad has with pdfing dwgs. Not Impressed at all by how horrible the internal pdf driver is. My problem is this: Once I 'dwg to pdf' a dwg, the lineweights look different. When I zoom in, the line weights return to normal and back again when I zoom out. I've read somewhere that this could be a lineweight issue. I have checked that already and set all lineweights to 0.00. This makes me think that it could be a video issue or maybe I'm finally losing my mind? When printing, linetypes are all the same; No issues when printing the pdf. Any knowledge on this subject would be greatly appreciated. Also, I can screenshot some images if you'd like me to.

    The same problem exists with other PDF generators/viewers. I've set up lineweights based on what I see on a PDF only to have them come out differently when the PDF is printed. So, I'm enclined to think that it is an issue with the viewer as linewieghts are printed the same as if they are printed directly from AutoCAD.
    Drafting is a breeze.

    I figured something of that nature. Thank you for your input.
