I couldn’t find where to specify the default “Line weight” for a newly created layer. Default proposed is 0,25 mm ISO and I would like to continue to uses 0,00 mm. Because, these lines are very thick when i look at my drawing in

This task depends upon

Andrew posted this report after I sent him an e-mail. Thanks.

Just to complete the last statement « ... when I look at my drawing in Print Preview window

To be able to continue working on my drawings, I edited all newly created layers and changed the "Line Weight" to 0,00 mm. Now that I'm aware of this default value, I immediately change this value when I create a new layer, but I would prefer not to have to ;-)
