Hello, so I am having problems with my lineweights after ploting my drawings to a PDF. I was never having this problem before and on other files, the plotiing seems to work properly, but on this specific drawing file, its not working.
The problem is that everytime I plot and I scale my lines wieghts, I lose them on the PDF. I check the "Scale Lineweight" box after ploting and then open the file as a PDF preview and all my line weights are gone and everything is just the default line weight. If I don't scale the lineweights and I don't check the box, then the lines weights are all too thick and extremely distorted.
I am using:
.60 for cutlines
.30 for forelines
.25 for midlines
and .15 for hidden.
They are the lineweights that I have used before and they worked properly, but now its just not working... Any help? Perhaps a specific setting on my file is off a bit? Suggestions or any info needed? Thanks.
I assume you can start a new file and have no issues, correct? If the answer is yes, start a new file, the use INSERT command and insert the problem file into it, explode it, recreate the layouts ONLY from other files that work (assuming you do not plot from modelspace of course). SAVEAS command and you now have a replacement to the problem file that works just fine. Test and confirm.
