Changing Line Weights

Using the latest release of HD Pro on a Mac, I'm having problems with the weights of my CAD polylines.  I can modify their color and style but not their weights either individually with Polyline Specifications or in Layer Display Options.  All lines remain default weight.  What setting(s) am I missing?

1) Please fill out your Signature -- see below.

 

2) Under the View menu, do you have a Line Weights option? You may change the weights, but must also tell the program to display using the weights.

It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left. Doing so makes it always available, and this info is often key to providing a good suggestion

The built in Help System (always a good place to start)

You open the CAD object's dialog box. Go to it's Line Style Tab. Uncheck "By Layer" and then set that line, arc or polyline to the line weight you desire. Rather straight forward.

This doesn't work for me.  The line size never changes in weight.

Well, in order to"SEE" the line weight change on screen you must also turn on "Show Line Weight". Once that is done you can then and only then "see" the line weight change on screen, of course, you can print and see the change but that is an inefficient way to do so, after the fact. That is what the "Show Line Weight" tool is for, take a look (again).
