CAD Lines in layout

Recommended Posts

Can someone tell me when I draw a line, arched line, etc, in Layout mode how I can change the line weight / thickness?  Also when I draw a line with an arrow or a leader line in plan or layout, I can re-size the arrow itself but the line weight wont change when I change from lets say a 1 to a 10.    

 

Thanks

Do you have line weights toggled ON?

Line Weights in Layout may need to be larger differences than in Plan.

Line weight are on. You are correct... The line weight must be MUCH large in layout.  I changed one from 1 to 10 with no visible difference but changing to 75 did it.

My line-weights start at 15 and go up from there to 200 for property lines. Anything below 10 is probably to light. You can also use a grayscale line to make it seem lighter.

This statement confuses me.  Are you talking about lines weights for PLAN FILES or are you talking about line weights for LALYOUT FILES?  

 

I assume you are talking about PLAN FILES,  if this is correct,  then line weight of 200 would be way to heavy for me.......  but...  but......  I think this is dependent on what is spec'd out in the DRAWING SHEET SETUP<ADVANCED LINE WEIGHT OPTION..............  I bring this up for a newbie that may be reading this......  point being the line weights basis can be controlled by several different defaults........  oh so confusing........  all I know is football starts this weekend and hopefully the LA Chargers will have a good year before they locate in Perry's back yard.......  that will be a sad day for us folks living on the border.

I said 200 for property lines or terrain perimeter to be exact, and that is in the plan and transferred to the layout when printing, I never touch the layout line-weights and keep that setting at 100 where chief puts it. Any changes to line-weights are done at the plan level. Changing the layout line-weights Change all of them at the same time.

The bookies don't have the la chargers doing very good this year.
