Toggle Lineweight Display of PDFs


Posted (edited)

We need a way to turn off the display of lineweights for the contents of PDF objects. Currently all geometry is always shown with the full line thickness, regardless of whether the "Zoom Line Thickness" setting is on or off. This can make viewing and interacting with a PDF quite difficult at times.


This could be solved in one of two ways:

-Make the contents of PDFs respond to the "Zoom Line Thickness" setting like all other objects.

-Or, have a checkbox in the PDF's OIP that says something like "Display lineweights" which could be turned on and off per PDF. (Not sure if this is necessary - I'd personally go with the first option, unless there's a technical reason for it to be OIP-based).

(Obviously this would only affect vector-based PDFs)
