    Wall Line Weights

    Yes, I agree but sometimes when I search for an answer to something it usually with help me to understand something that I have been missing or open my eyes to something else. In this case is was just a big waste of everybody's time! Thank you all for your putting up with me! Al though I do enjoy the chalange!

    I don't believe that line weight number goes to anything. Its just there doing nothing. This layer is just to separate the main layer from everything else quickly for the framing plan and other uses. At least for now that is the way I see it.

    I get all that as far as changing the line weights. That's pretty simple. The part I don't get is the function of the line weight in this picture for the "Wall, Main Layer Only"? When I change it, it does not seem to effect anything. Should this just be something I ignore or am I completely missing the boat (out to lunch!, senile.....)?

    Are you referring to the "Wall Type Definition Box"? If you are, there is nothing in there with the 35 weight that I see under walls main layer.

    Wall Line Weights

    So, I know that when I select walls main layer that it shows only the main layer. What I don't know is what is the difference between the line weight from the normal wall to the main layers only? When I change the weight number to the main layer only it doesn't seem to effect anything.

    Rotate Plan

    I rotated my plan 180 degree but now when I put text in it's always upside down. Is there a way to fix it so I don't have to change it every time I put text in? Any help would be appreciated. Thank You

    Yes I get that but when you set it up like Joey, mm doesn't really matter anymore. Out with the old and in with the new! Thank for for your input, I appreciate it!

    I can tell you right now that I like it already! It really simplifies your line sizing! I don't need 200 different line sizes to pick from

    Wall Line Weights

    I remember the pen plotter and I also remember the different size pencils I used when I drew by hand. So when I started using drawing programs I stopped thinking so much about line weights just because it was another thing I had to figure out. Now that I'm further along in my knowledge of the program I'm working on learning more about how the line weight setting work. Thank you so much for sharing what you have learned with me, It really helps a lot! Question: Can you help me to understand the difference between the layout page drawing sheet setup and the plan drawing sheet setup as far as the line weight settings? I need to know if you do this setting in both of course but also I need to understand how one can effect the other. This is the kind of question that is hard to figure out just from reading the help files. I know the answer is there but I don't always see it because I struggle with written instruction. I'm guess I'm pointing out my disability! Haha

    Wall Line Weights

    I know that I can choose to change line weights but I was curious to know why the line weights are so large by default for walls? Is there a purpose behind that? I usually leave the line weights turned off but when I want to seem them and turn it on the walls look terrible. Just wondering if I'm missing something here? Im at the point where Im starting to setup line weights for better looking drawings so any better understanding I can get to help me to get it looking good will help. Im also starting to do the PDF's in color so I can have light grey walls for new walls instead of solid black. This is the default setting for the line weights. Don't make sense to me This is an example of what I'm doing. I learned that if I print to PDF in color that the walls will come out in the light grey. Much nicer look to me! Any suggestions is appreciated.

    Resize Site plan

    I accidently saved this complicated site plan to version 12 and I need someone in version 10 to open it. Is there a way I can export a line drawing to an earlier version?
