Lineweights not printing to PDF


When I use PUBLISH to print drawings to PDF, the lineweights I set on the plan are not appearing in the PDF, they are all thin lines. I have used PAGE SETUP to set the paper size.


If I use FILE PRINT, I can print one page at a time, and the lineweights appear okay when using this command. 


I also tried FILE EXPORT to PDF and that made no difference, but if I selected the rasterise option, it prints with the lineweights. 


My default PDF software is BLUEBEAM, so this is the printer I select in PAGE SETUP. 


Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I am using Adobe Acrobat Reader and do not see a problem with the lineweights. Attached are two PDFs, one is direct publishing to PDF, without rasterize option selected, and the other is print-to-PDF using the Publish menu command. Both PDFs look in this way:

Thanks, I found that I had the lineweight setting switched off in Bluebeam, so all lines were appearing thin. I
