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



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?



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


Profile manager:




| Archicad 4.55 - 27
| HP Z840 | 2× E5-2643 v4 | 64 GB RAM | Quadro M5000 | Windows 10 Pro x64
| HP Z4 G4 | W-2245 | 64 GB RAM | RTX A4000 | Windows 11

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.


So far only one like. 😥



One of the forum moderators.
Versions 6.5 to 27
Dell XPS- i7-6700 @ 3.4Ghz, 16GB ram, GeForce GTX 960 (2GB), Windows 10
Lenovo Thinkpad - i7-1270P 2.20 GHz, 32GB RAM, Nvidia T550, Windows 11

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 ...
