Pen weight doubles after publishing to PDF



I'm using AC 26 HUN solo (no TM), and I have the following problem with publishing:

The line weights are doubled in the published PDFs throught the project compared to what I see on the drawing placed on the Layout. 

I checked the following:

- the drawing is placed at 100% scale on the layout

- true line weights are on 

- the pen set is not overridden in the placed drawing's settings.

- the exported PDF is the correct sheet size

- there is no pen set that with the line weights seen in the published drawing

- Similar problems arose when we were working on TM projects, the solution there was deleting the TM DATA folder in the user's Graphisoft folder. Is there a similar reset for solo archicad?


what operating system are you using?

Design Technology Managers.
All  on macOS | since AC 6

Archicad Framework > Smart Template 27
Smart Tree, Transmittal and Universal Label and other smart GDL Objects
By Architects for Architects.

Windows 11. After some testing this thickening seems 'business as usual', it occurs on different computers, different porjects, so I guess I'll justa have to reduce all line weights a bit in the pen sets.
