Leader lines appearing bold when copied

I am using vanilla autocad 2011. installed from the autocad mechanical suite. I keep having a problem when copying blocks, leader lines and text, they sometimes apear bold in paper space. I have used the trick of changing the Z dimension from 0 to 1 and back to 0. My leader lines do not have the ability to do that. How can I keep this from happening. Autocad 2010 never had this isssue. Attached is a capture of the problem, you will see the bold text.

this is got noting to do with Z dimension (keep all your 2d objects on Z=0)


What's the name of the font file you use?


Does lweight (lwdisplay sysvar) ON? (set it to off)

As a test, change the font used to an SHX font, does the problem go away?
