Detail in drawing

    I made a drawing showing a section in a part.
    Now I want to dimension a detail of this drawing/section.
    I made a circle in the drawing (sketch in view) and used the detail tool to enlarge/scale up the content of the circle.
    The enlargement of the geometry in the circle works OK, but the thickness/line weight is also enlarged and this is not OK.
    Both main lines and dimensionlines are shown thick. I expected these lines to have same thickness as the rest of the drawing.

    It looks not good - drawing enclosed.

    The crosshatch-lines and textsize are OK, i.e. not enlarged.

    Am I missing a setting somewhere or is it a task for the Alibre team?

    Do you have '(BETA) Realtime Line Widths' enabled for 2D drawings ? try it in the opposite setting.

    This is already logged with Development.

    I have now unchecked '(BETA) Realtime Line Widths' and it looks better, but shows now without different line widths.
    From your answer I assume that this will be taken care of in future updates.
    Thank you for clarifying.

    I think it should print ok though, correct?

    I have noticed this as well, sometimes makes it hard to select what you need to for dimensioning.
