I have just loaded DataCAD onto a new computer and the lines are displaying really thick. The lines are set to a weight of 1 so this is not the issue. When I print the weights are normal. Amy ideas how to rectify this issue?

I had this problem many, many years ago. Turns out the machine had on board graphics. A new graphics card solved the problem. Worrying though when you have a new set up.

Thank you Josh, I tried the suggestions, but with no luck. My properties page looked different to the one Mark had. I am using LT17. See below.

Rex, wouldn't everything by thicker if it was a card issue? I have no idea about these sort of things.

Cheers to both of you.

When I had this problem, only Datacad lines were thick. Other software ran as normal. Maybe Datacad needs more resources?

Not sure what I have done now? I open DataCAD and nothing displays at all. However, when I close the program, the Do you want to save window appears? I tried uninstalling and reinstalling. No luck. ARGH.

Maybe try downloading the V20 trial and see if that changes things?
