Obviously, I can set the lineweight to bylayer, but what if I want a different lineweight than the layer it's on has?
Is the setting hidden in there somewhere? It seems a little odd, not to be there if Plot by lineweight is the way things are "suppose" to be going.
Right after I posted this I found that I can set it individually with the properties dialog... but it sure would be nice if the style could take care of it.
The style will do this...

That's why it's called LINEWEIGHT, it refers to lines, not text.

Funny... but no...
when I change the lineweight of the text it shows visually correct on the screen.. but since I'm plotting ByStyle it uses what the layer is set on
There have been long-standing bugs in C3D on this issue, but usually it affects the leaders in the dragged state, and not the text itself.
But we also switched some time back to using TTF fonts, because they look so much better in final prints than SHP fonts. And TTF fonts are not affected by lineweight settings.
Here's a snapshot of what I'm talking about. There is a setting for color and lineweight
for my station label, but this has no effect when printing by Plot Style.
It looks like you have some embedded text formatting in your label contents, although that may not be responsible for the issue you're trying to solve. Unless, of course, you're using CTB files... It looks like your embedded text formatting is changing the color of the text, and that can have an impact if you're using CTB.
What are you using for your Text Style in your label? Is it something that points to an SHX font, or a TTF font?
I'm using a STB
The text style points to a .shx font. I'm not sure what that has to do with it though... The option to set a "Plot Style" isn't even there.
If it's Mtext, I can select it and change it in properties... I don't even have that option with alignment stations. However,
it seems like it should be a style setting and I just don't see it there.
