    Line weights

    mmensen1

      Is there some way to adjust the default line weight of wires (ESYS_WIRE)? Currently it is set at 0.15 but my customer would like to see it at 0.30.

       

      Thanks,

      Mark

          Hi Mark,

           

          If run the VeSys Configuration Editor you can change the default Line Weight for wires.  Click on the Design button and then select the Text tab.

            I have already tried that. It changed the line weight of the text for the wires, and not the actual line representing the wire. The text is fine as is, but the line representing the wire needs to be increased.

              Oopps yeah that was under the text menu wasn't it!

               

              You can actually 'Quick Select' to select all of the Wires in your design and change the lineweights.  To do this you need to:

               

              • Click the AutoCAD properties button
              • Click the Quick Select button
              • Change the object type from "Multiple" to "ESYS_WIRE"
              • Change the Operator type from "= Equals" to "Select All"
              • Click OK
              • Change the Lineweight to 0.3

               

              This quick select command can be used for any objects within AutoCAD to quickly change/filter things, I've used it in the past to select all of the text notes on a drawing that were a particular color.

                That works. I was unware of the quick select function. Thank you for the advice!

                  Is there a way to change the default values so that I don't have to go through the quick select process before I save each time? Or so that for a new schematic the default is set to a line weight of 0.3 for ESYS_WIRE?

                   

                  Thanks,

                    Hi Mark,

                     

                    I don't believe there is a default way of setting this although you might be able to create a script that will automatically set all of the lineweights.
