  24. &lt;br /&gt;
  25.  
  26. &lt;br /&gt;
  27. However, if I would be producing a &#039;tiny&#039; set of drawings on regular basis, and would consider a custom pen set for that, I would just copy my cloned views and assign the pen set and name this set for the 50% printing. Put some standard layouts for this in my template and every project I start has this workflow set up.
  28. &lt;br /&gt;
  29.  
  30. &lt;br /&gt;
  31. As an example, when I do the BIMx with floor plans, sections and such included, I find that the presentation trick of showing your drawing in the 3D works best when all the drawings are on their own sheet. I don&#039;t generally print out the projects this way, but I have created a BIMx layout set in my template for this reason only.&lt;/td&gt; &lt;/tr&gt;&lt;/table&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;postbody&quot;&gt;
  32. &lt;br /&gt;
  33.  
  34. &lt;br /&gt;
  35. Exactly.  So even if we had automatic scaling in Layouts we would still want to have special pen sets for many things, and for many reasons.
  36. &lt;br /&gt;
  37. But I still think it would be useful for many situations.  
  38. &lt;br /&gt;
  39.  
  40. &lt;br /&gt;
  41. I find that I am having to print out odd scale drawings for people more, sooner and sooner in the process of producing the final set of working drawings.  I just don&#039;t like having to fuss with drawings I already have perfected at the end use scale for the sake of all the requests for drawings along the way to the final set.  Why can&#039;t they just wait until I am finished &lt;img src=&quot;http://archicad-talk.graphisoft.com/images/smiles/icon_sad.gif&quot; alt=&quot;Sad&quot; border=&quot;0&quot; /&gt;
  42. &lt;br /&gt;
  43. !!! Make just one set and if they can use it fine, if not, too bad.

  105. I have merged this topic with another that was already being discussed about the same thing.
  106. &lt;br /&gt;
  107.  
  108. &lt;br /&gt;
  109. I really don&#039;t think automatic scaling of line thickness will work.
  110. &lt;br /&gt;
  111. You may not want all lines to increase (thin lines you might not want to make thicker) or decrease (already thin lines will get to thin).
  112. &lt;br /&gt;
  113.  
  114. &lt;br /&gt;
  115. I think the best way is to have alternate pen sets.
  116. &lt;br /&gt;
  117. This way you can control the pens you want to change or not.
  118. &lt;br /&gt;
  119. But some of the other options here may help.

  141. Hi
  142. &lt;br /&gt;
  143.  
  144. &lt;br /&gt;
  145. Is there anyway in ARCHICAD to bump up the line weight of a drawing in a layout by a factor?
  146. &lt;br /&gt;
  147.  
  148. &lt;br /&gt;
  149. E.g. I have two detail drawings. One is 1:10 one is 1:5
  150. &lt;br /&gt;
  151. The two drawings are of the same Detail but saved with different views, one view at 1:10 and one view at 1:5
  152. &lt;br /&gt;
  153.  
  154. &lt;br /&gt;
  155. When I lay them out on the drawing I want the line weights for the 1:5 drawing to be the same as twice as thick as the 1:10 drawing
  156. &lt;br /&gt;
  157.  
  158. &lt;br /&gt;
  159. In Vectorworks there was a way in the Viewport settings to bump this up by a factor
  160. &lt;br /&gt;
  161.  
  162. &lt;br /&gt;
  163. I&#039;d rather not have to set up scale specific Pen sets in archicad to achieve this
  164. &lt;br /&gt;
  165.  
  166. &lt;br /&gt;
  167. Any tips?
  168. &lt;br /&gt;
  169.  
  170. &lt;br /&gt;
