Plotting line weights using drawing views

I have a problem. For example, I have a 3D model. I'm making drawing view, using "create view" task. Now, when i got my view in layout, I choose "edit view" and set appearance to "hidden lines". Ok. When I plot my drawing, i get all lines with the same line weight - visible and invisible lines are all the same weight. How can I make invisible (hidden) lines to be ploted thiner, while visible lines stay thick? Do Autocad 2013 have this option to make it available to change?

Using VIEWBASE commands creates layers MD-XYZ, look for the layer you need and adjust accordingly.

I only get a MD_Visible or MD_Hidden layer that everything goes on.  I can't seem to get individual layers for any of the objects in my created view, nor can I assign any layers.  This is extremely frustrating.  If I can't change line weight or line type.  I can't use it.  Any Ideas...
