    Default Lines display thick in paperspace

    I tried to seach, but did not even know what I was looking for exactly.

    When I view my dwg in paperspace, all my lines appear to be much thicker then they should be. What setting might I look at to change this. All layers and lines are set to "default" thickness on plot. Could it be that my default is set at something it shouldnt be? How do I change the default?

    did you try setting psltscale for the layout tabs??? Im not sure if it will fix your issue, however it does fix issues with the linetype scales not showing correctly.

    Format menu: Lineweight

    Shortcut menu: Right-click the Lwt button on the status bar and choose Settings.

    Command line: lweight (or 'lweight for transparent use)

    If this is just on-screen, try clicking the "LWT" button at the bottom of the screen to toggle whether or not displays weighted lines. [Between the OSNAP and PAPER/MODEL buttons].

    Are your line weights set by entity or bylayer? Did you set line weights to be controlled in the Layer Manager or are you using a ctb file to control?

    Thanks for all the replies. The "LINEWEIGHT" command gave me what I needed. My default was set way too thick.

    How odd, in searching for this same answer, I ran across your post. I'm a kdibella too! Anyhow, everyone, what worked for me was "LWDISPLAY". When you set this to OFF, problem is fixed!
