    How do I make drawing lines thicker?

    Greeting, I went the line width and could not get anything to happen with my drawing. I'm drawing the a bottle profile and want the lines to be thicker. Thanks in advance.

    You can change the width of the line in layers. It will not change on the display just when printed.

    You can also attribute a line width to individual curve objects via the Properties box.

    It will not change on the display just when printed.
    You can use the command PrintDisplay and toggle the state to "on" in the command line to see the line width displayed on the screen. You may need to also adjust the relative thickness scale to correspond with your screen display. The other options should be self-explanatory.

    Thank you for the help. I have the lines thicker when printed, but can not find the print display command. I know it's right in front of me, but I just can't find it.

    cheers, tim

    Upper left corner, the tiny printer pic. You will get a print set up page and view of what will be printed.

    When in doubt, just type the command at the command line.

    In this case, the PrintDisplay command was a late add-on, and has neither a toolbar button nor a menu item, so typing the command is the only way to access it (unless you make your own toolbar button or alias for it). --ch
