Lineweight Settings Dialog Box

Lineweight Settings Dialog Box

Sets the current lineweight and lineweight units, controls the display and display
scale of lineweights, and sets the DEFAULT lineweight value for layers.

List of Options

The following options are displayed.

Lineweights

Displays the available lineweights.

Lineweight values consist of standard settings including BYLAYER, BYBLOCK, and DEFAULT.
The DEFAULT value is set by the LWDEFAULT system variable, which has an initial value
of 0.01 inches or 0.25 mm. All new layers use the default setting. The lineweight
value of 0 plots at the thinnest lineweight available on the specified plotting device
and is displayed at one pixel wide in model space.

NOTE:Objects with lineweights that are displayed with a width of more than one pixel can
increase regeneration time. If you want to optimize performance, set the lineweight
display scale to the minimum value or turn off lineweight display altogether.

Current Lineweight

Displays the current lineweight. To set the current lineweight, select a lineweight
from the lineweight list and choose OK.

Units for Listing

Specifies whether lineweights are displayed in millimeters or inches. (LWUNITS system
variable)

Millimeters (mm)

Specifies lineweight values in millimeters. (LWUNITS system variable)

Inches (in.)

Specifies lineweight values in inches. (LWUNITS system variable)

Display Lineweight

Controls whether lineweights are displayed in the current drawing. (LWDISPLAY system
variable)

If this option is selected, lineweights are displayed in model space and paper space.
Regeneration time increases with lineweights that are represented by more than one
pixel. Lineweights are always plotted, even if they are not displayed.

Default

Controls the DEFAULT lineweight for layers. (LWDEFAULT system variable)

Adjust Display Scale

Controls lineweight scaling on the Model tab. This setting has no effect on layouts.

On the Model tab, lineweights are displayed in pixels. Lineweights are displayed
using a pixel width in proportion to the real-world unit value at which they plot.
If you are using a high-resolution monitor, you can adjust the lineweight display
scale to better display different lineweight widths. The Lineweight list reflects
the current display scale.
