Print settings - how to make electrical devices darker?

What settings need to be changed to make electrical devices print with a wider linetype?  The default settings leave the linetype very narrow so electrical work does not stand out on electrical sheets, making prints hard to read.  The same goes for fire alarm devices, data devices, etc.


Thanks for any help.

You need to adjust the Linetype under the "Generic Annotations" category. If you are changing the model category for these devices, you are actually changing the linetype for the modeled devices and not the "symbol" that represents them.
