line weight shows differently in complex profile and on the floor plans

Hi 

This problem that I'm having has been showing up for some time on various projects and I can't figure out the reason why it is happening nor what causes it.

In my complex profile section when I set line weights to certain fills everything look fine, and it is like this:

 

(section complex profile )

But when i go to a floor plan the things don't show up as set in the complex profile:

 

(floor plan)

as it is visible,  the left line of a reinforced concrete element is a light line while it should have been thick.

Do you have any idea why this is happening and how to fix it?

Thanks

I noticed the same thing in a composite profiled wall yesterday but couldn't find any solution yet (v25). Floor plan here:

yes, v25 here as well. And just to add that everything looks fine in sections, so the problem appears only on the floor plans

I don't know if any of these ideas will help.

 

Does adjusting the Floor Plan Cut Plane height make any difference?

Turn on/off the bold cut lines.

Turn on/off true line weight.

In the profile manager, bring the concrete fill to the front.

 

The display of complex profile walls in plan can be troublesome, which is why I made this wish to be able to select a symbolic cutting plane for representation in plan.

Yes that's a great idea! but so far as I see still just a wish 😕

And unfortunately none of your proposal didn't fix the problem ...
