I’m having a line weight issue between different views and can’t for the life of me figure out why this is happening.  Someone in a different office set up the project so I’m not sure how they set it up and why the views are showing up with different line weights.  The same object appears light in one viewport and dark in another.  I’ve attached a jpg that shows the issue.  The line weights are different with a lot of the families, so it doesn’t seem to be an object issue and more related to the specific view.  It’s almost as if the “thin lines” option is permanent in a few of the views – is this possible? 

There aren’t any overrides in the “Visibility/Graphic Overrides” in either view and the “Object Styles” seem to be set at the same line weight between the two views.  I don’t think they used the “Linework” tool to change all of the items in either view.  They are both set to “Detail Level: Medium” and at the same scale.  I’ve tried looking through the forums on here and haven’t found anyone else having the same issue so I’m at a loss for what to try next.

Any idea why this is happening and how I can fix it?  I’m using Revit Architecture 2010.

You say that VG settings are the same without over-rides.  A good way to verify that is to create a new test view template from one view and apply that to the other.  If something changes, you know it is a VG issus.  Other than that, you also have VG over-rides by elements.  Right click on one of these objects and check it's over-ride settings then check the same object in the other view.

Thanks WWHub!

When I created a view template from one view and applied it to the other view, it changed the lineweights to match.  I must have missed some override setting when I was checking between the two.  I'm still not sure where the discrepancy is coming from, but at least the lineweights match between the views now.
