Line width display

Hello all,

If I set the width of line to Thick(5) and then zoom to something like 15%
on a 1/4" = 1'-0" drawing on a large sheet, the line is displayed way too
thick. If I zoom to 200% the line is still thick but, of course, parallel
lines (like walls) look ok.

Apparently, line thickness is displayed with the same screen pixel width no
matter what the zoom % is. This is not the case with polylines which are
correctly displayed. (A 2" wide pline looks thin at 15% and wide at 200%...)

Is there a way to display line width correctly?

TIA,

Joe

So far as I know, there is no way to "fix" this problem. That is why I use
polylines as much as possible for thick lines.
