Line width


When you vectorize a raster image, all the vectors that are produced have a line width of zero. However:

When you load a vector PDF file, lines in the file may have a line width.
When you draw vector lines using Scan2CAD’s vector drawing tools you can assign a line width to them.

Query a line width

1. Click or select Vector Edit Menu > Query Vector Type.
2. Pass your mouse over the vector.

The vector type and line width are displayed.

Some CAD and CNC programs are unable to handle line widths.

To stop line width data from being saved to a DXF file, go to File Menu > Vector > DXF Export Options and deselect Include Line Widths.
