Ticket #4418 - MacOS line width not getting wider

Post by brickmaker »

I have currently tried to draw a simple line in a couple different workbenches including Arch and Draft. My issue I am having is when I draw a line and I want to change the line width it can't get wider than 7px? I ran the same test on a Ubuntu computer I have and it was able to draw a line with a width bigger than 7px. Thank you for your help.

How are you adjusting the line width? One way I know of is to select the line in the 3d view, then go to the property view, switch to view tab and look for the line width property there.

I have tried it both ways from property View and from the toolbar and it wont go wider than 7px? I have tried typing in a number and I have tried incrementally increasing it.

I can confirm on my older osx. I guess it is the implementation of OpenGL on OSX.

I don't have a mac anymore for experimentation. Try changing this setting in edit -> preferences -> display

No, I had tried this already; it doesn't help.

This is now migrated to issue #6099.
@chrisb can you still reproduce?
