Hi,

in Partial view you cannot set color of view lines.

 

If detail option line_style_standard std_ansi is set then outline is assigned Geometry color and pen 1 is used to draw outline by default.

 

If detail option line_style_standard std_din is set then outline is assigned Letter color and pen 2 is used to draw outline by default.

 

You can hide view outline and sketch spline that replace it. The spline can be assigned any color.

 

See outline.mp4 video.

In Acrobat open your pdf version of the drawing and then use ctrl+5 keys to alter the line weight display. This will make the visible lines thinner and should display correctly. This may resolve the issue you are having.

Hi,

what Acrobat version is able to alter the line weight ? Full version ? Acrobat Reader ?


Martin Hanák

All versions of Acrobat and Acrobat reader I have ever used support this. I am using Acrobat Reader XI currently and this works. It is quite useful for clarity when visible lines are overlapping in a view.

 

Creo PDF from dwg as seen in reader:

Same file after using ctrl+F5

Does this work with free version?

It has worked in every version of Adobe Reader and Acrobat I have ever used. The sequence is CTRL+5 .
