Use this advanced option to specify the base line width for printed drawings. Enter the value in millimeters as decimal value. The default value is 0.01. The final line thicknesses in a printed drawing is the base line width multiplied by the pen thickness from the Print Drawings dialog box (or in the old printing, from the Color dialog box). For example, 25 will give a thickness of 0.25 mm.


To control the accuracy of line thickness, use a small value for XS_BASE_LINE_WIDTH and a large number for the pen.

This advanced option also affects lines on the screen, if you set XS_BASE_LINE_WIDTH_AFFECTS_SCREEN to TRUE.

This advanced option is model specific and the setting is saved in the options databasedatabase file that contains the settings of model-specific general settings and advanced options

There are two options databases, the model options database (options_model.db) and the drawing options database (options_drawings.db).
