When I set my default line weight for the current dwg. it also changes the next drawing I go into, I thought
this was a individual drawing setting, Or am I just wrong
where do you find that setting, I can't seem to find it. But that would make sense if it's "set to drawing",as I think it should be,
it would be drawing specific. Did I get that right? I need to fix this because as I go back though old drawings I can't remember what default setting I had.
It's not acting like a system variable where you set it to 0,1. It's just asking me to set the width of the default.
I can do that with the dia. box. Each drawing should have it's own default width, right?
that's not the problem, the problem is the default setting stays to what ever I last changed it to. Say I"m working on a drawing and I set the default .05. Then I go into an old drawing to plot it and find out that (old default was .25) it has plotted the new default) .05.
It's like it's not remembering or maybe it's me.
LWDEFAULT is a system variable and if you look it up in help, as I suggested earlier, you'll see that it is saved in the Registry. This means it is a global setting which affects all drawings, not a setting that is saved in the DWG. Unfortunately your understanding of this functionality was in error.
Thanks for the help. Just don't remember it working that way or maybe just didn't notice. but thanks anyway. Just have to set background layers by hand.
I set my LWDEFAULT to 0. Then once I close it down and reopen any dwg or the default, it goes back to .25. I have even went into the dwt and set it 0 and it works until i close and restart the software. Any tips?
I am trying to have my default lineweight setting to 0, no matter what dwg i open. Feedback appreciated.
