pro E line weight problem/pen assignments

So, i know how you can go into the options, and change pen1_line_weight value, but what i need to do is group the curve (darker blue) and the white geometry lines into different pens. Is there a way to do that? we use curve colors for our dimensioning, and we need the geometry lines to be thicker. How can i achieve this? and i know people tell me to go into config.pro, but when i search for config.pro, there are a lot of those, which one is the right one??

RE: pro E line weight problem/pen assignments

There should only be one config.pro file and it should be in the start up directory.

I would suggest that you delete the extra ones, unless pro engineer is directed to read them, they would probably not be read anyway.


RE: pro E line weight problem/pen assignments

Try using a pen table file.  Google "table.pnt".  It will allow you to control line width based upon the type of geometry.

RE: pro E line weight problem/pen assignments

which is the start up directory??

RE: pro E line weight problem/pen assignments

Location of pen table file would be defined in a config.pro or config.sup by the option;

pen_table_file <path to file>
