Summary0001863: Global preference for drawing line width
DescriptionEach inserted drawing view has two properties called Line Width (default 0,35) and Hidden Width (default 0,15). It would be great if user could somehow set default (custom) values for this two properties globally.

In the future FreeCAD might be able to define line width automatically based on drawing template size inserted:

But for now it would be great if global method would exist instead of user each time having to select each drawing view and change values if default values are not appropriate for the project.
TagsNo tags attached.
