Marker Elements on-screen-only parts


Does anyone know how to change the pen thickness of the Marker Elements' on-screen-only parts such as Section Limit Line, Elevation Line and Detail Boundary Line? I've gone to Options < Work Environment < On-Screen Options and changed the pen to a 0.05mm pen but the thickness doesn't change on my plans. RE: purple line in attachment.


Thank you in advance.

I think you want the pens in the marker settings, not the w/e settings.

But if not:
is there a graphic override rule changing the pens? I have a GO on all my views, since the markers routinely go dashed or double dashed, so I just override all marker lines/pens (since they were not actually built with adjustable parameters).

I'm wondering if we are talking about the same thing? I appreciate the input, but the pens in the marker settings change the pens for the marker itself, at least what I've found. The on-screen-only parts are in the W/E settings. I can change the pens in the W/E settings but the only thing that changes is the color of the pen type and not the thickness of the pen type. So, if I set it to pen 1 which is black at 0.5mm it only takes on the color. When I change it to pen 2, which is a purple at 0.05mm again, the color changes, but the pen stays the same thickness.

Don't ask me why, but the thickness of boundary lines (Marker Range) is effected by pen #1 (sections, elevations) and pen #85 (interior elevations)
