Hi all, As we know, you are able to show the individual layers of a roof makeup when in 'fine detail' view. With good drafting practice one does not backline the top and bottom of the roof depth when in section if you are showing the makeup of the roof. You would backline the roof covering only. Is it possible to set a pen weight to a specific layer? cadjockey

Yes. Override Host layers in your view settings...

Hi Mr Spot, Can you please clarify? When creating a roof style you have the ability to select a number of respective layers ie. roof finish, structure etc. As you know these are assigned a material type eg. finish - roof slate When manipulating the view settings do I need to create a sub-category within the object style 'roof' and call it 'roof slate' in order to set the pen wieght for this segement of the roof make-up? This challenge also applies to ceiling. Essentially I am wanting to have just one layer of the roof(or ceiling) to print with a heavier line weight in section. The roof lining or ceiling lining cadjockey Post edited on 2005-12-05 01:28:04

I have a similar question relating to walls. When you view them in elevation, I would prefer to have the surround (edges) in a heavier lineweight. Is there a way to do this? At the moment all the wall and adjacent objects seem to be about the same lineweight *** don't worry. worked it out.*** Post edited on 2005-12-05 02:09:33

Refer to attached image. No need to create subcategories - just enable this view override.
