    (maybe this is pointed out somewhere else - but could not find a specific thread by a quick search ...)

    for whatever reason Alibre (V21 [21034]) is scaling the width of all lines with the scale of the view.
    This is imho useless in any way and very annoying - or is there a particular usage for that I cannot see ?
    Maybe there is a hidden (or just not found by me) option to disable this behavior ?
    Just want a 0.5mm line to be a 0.5mm line, no matter what scale or size the view (or the part) is (like in all other CAD software)
    (And yes ... I'm using HOOPS and prefer to do so)

    Turn off the (BETA) Real Time Line Widths option. This setting is accessed from System Options-> Drawings -> Viewing / Interaction

    This feature needs a bit more work to give optimal performance in all situations. This has already been referred to Development.

    No. I would have mentioned that if so.
