Hey everyone. My name is James.


I have a later version of Softplan, -13. I have yet to find a way to change the thickness of my lines, to make them bolder when needed. 


Is there such an adjustment?

Yes in the print pen setup. Set your PENS to the thickness you require and adjust the pen for each component as necessary.

You can also change the width of your line and make it solid, I use this a lot instead of pen weights as pen weights don’t always show up on the screen


I use 1/2” for most bold lines and 1 1/2” for grade lines but you can experiment 


Once you set one line you can use repeat edit to change more


I find if I use pen weights I always miss an edit or something else shows up bold when I print it when I don’t want it to be.


my 2 cents
