    Thin/thick lines alignment difference

    Working with 2012 today, I had thick lines turned on, and performed an alignment of a table to a wall, in plan view.
    Went to thin lines, and the table was a few mm away from wall.
    Thought it might have been a family thing, but a subsequent alignment with thin lines on brought the table against the wall.
    Some of my students reported the same happening.
    Tried repeating the problem to no avail.
    Bit strange isn't it?:crazy:

    hmmm....is this behaviour dependant on your zoom level? i seem to remember a similar problem with the placement of linked site plans being discussed somewhere around here (or there

      I wasn't zoomed in close, possibly viewing an area 8-10metres across.

        Any chance the table you are referring to is the stock desk family? There are two edges in that family that you can align with, the reference plane and the table top solid. In plan view the reference plane is visible but the top solid isn't. When you align using the reference plane the table top is actually overhanging the side of the desk. If it isn't the family I'm referring to it could be something similar. You just need to verify that there isn't more than one surface or reference available to align with.

          yes, it was one of the stock desks.
          Bit badly built isn't it? To have a top that is not visible in plan and I presume it is under 1200mm height?

          Ok, that seems settled. Onwards. Thanks all. Love this place.

            you'll find a lot of OOTB stuff like that, it's always more interesting to build your own anyway :laugh: :wine:

              Yup, cause then you can add arrayed chairs and other completely useless stuff which makes you look cool to your coworkers... :laugh:

                Just would have thought OOTB would have been top class when it came to build.

                    We are dealing with the same people who make Revit ya know.... remember a lot of the OOTB stuff just keeps getting upgraded. Who knows who built it and how long ago it was built.... nuf said
