We have discovered that the line font for centerlines (axes) are plotted larger on paper than as they appear in the drawing (on screen). Apparently, this problem has been around for quite some time, but was not reported until today.
We estimate that they plot approximately 4 times larger. For example, the short dash is .125" on screen, yet is plotted .5" on paper. I've tried the config option "use_software_linefonts yes" and also disabling pen tables, but this did not help.
We use only the default (built-in) line fonts/styles. Our plotter is an Oce 9400 (HPGL2). I tried some other output formats, (such as tiff) but they do the same thing.
