Is it the same for any window and no matter what width you make it?

Could it be a window marker with a screen coloured background fill?

Hi Barry, thank you once again for you help. I went through your suggestions.

Finaly, it turned out that I had selected "override objects line types" without realising.

So I assume then it was using a 'dashed' line.

The short lines look ok because they are too short to show a gap.

The longer lines show the gap in the dashed lines.

Well, this is what is strange to me. The override line was a solid line. And when I changed the line it didn't change the appearance of the window plan view. I played around with it but it didn't seem to do anything to change the appearance, except dust turning it on and off, which removed the gaps. This is a setting I never touch normally and have no idea how it works. I'll play around with it some more. Thank you very much for your help.
