Controlling the display of lineweights

You can reduce the time it takes to display a drawing by turning off the display of lineweights. When you turn off lineweights, all entities display as outlines.

You can also specify a lineweight scale. Specify a smaller scale to display thinner lines; specify a larger scale to display thicker lines. For example, a scale factor of 0.5 would display a .80 millimeter lineweight as .40 millimeter; a scale factor of 2 would increase the same lineweight to display at 1.6 millimeters. This can help you differentiate various lineweights that display in a drawing. Adjusting the lineweight display scale affects how the lineweights appear on your screen, not how they appear when printed.

NOTE Setting the lineweight scale too high may result in slower system performance.

You can also adjust the units for measuring lineweights, and the default lineweight.

To control the display of lineweights

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Settings > Drawing Settings.
    • On the Settings toolbar, click the Drawing Settings tool ().
    • Type settings and then press Enter.
    • Type lweight and then press Enter.
  2. Click the Display tab.
  3. Under Change Settings For, click Lineweights.
  4. Select or clear Display Lineweights.
  5. In Units for Listing, choose Millimeters or Inches.
  6. In Default, select the lineweight assigned to layers and entities that use the Default lineweight.

  7. In Adjust Display Scale, move the slider to the scale you want. By default, the slider begins at 1.00.

  8. Click OK.

Choose how lineweights print
