Line weight scaling affects both line weights and line styles and can be particularly noticeable with dashed line styles. When a view is sent to layout, line weights may be affected by the drawing scale selected for the view. This occurs when the layout view’s scale is different from the drawing scale of the original view. You can specify the drawing scale for any orthogonal view by opening the Drawing Sheet Setup dialog while in that view. A message may appear when the Line Weight Scale setting for a view being sent to layout is not the same as the Line Weight Scale setting for the plan file.
