Hi all, I'm trying to set up a mixed working environment with AutoCAD and Draftsight.

Most things are working quite well for us.  One of our issues is that the same style tables seem to behave very differently in AutoCAD vs. Draftsight.  The draftsight lines often seem to be substantially thicker, pretty much across the board.  Lineweights are somewhat important in our drawings.

I'm kind of paranoid that there's some option that I need to change in one of these programs that would fix this.  Has anyone successfully made the lineweight tables cross-compatible?  Or else is anyone else experiencing this issue?

My current workarounds are we can either suck it up and only print from AutoCAD or else I was planning on making new, modified line tables with the same filenames as my old ones, though this would be a painstaking effort.  Any other ideas/advice?
