Question about visible wall intersection lines

Anonymous
Not applicable
When I print the layout to PDF, there are visible thin wall intersection lines that I don't know how to get rid of. They are not visible in the model view. See attachment.

Are you using Acrobat for viewing your PDFs?
It's a know limitation/problem and not Archicad's fault.

@Randy C - it's not a hatch.

Yes, I am using Acrobat. What alternatives are there? I also have Nitro PDF but it makes the PDFs huge.
Are these lines visible on the printed paper?

No, don't worry. This won't be seen when printed.
I don't know if other PDF readers do a better job.

But why do you say Nitro makes them heavy? Don't you use the default Archicad PDF output?
