Perimeter border width 'locked' to, like, really small!

Hello,

A colleague of mine experiences a situation where changing the border width doesn't change the width of the Line/Perimeter/Distance/Area Border Width. The box surrounding the comment scales up and down but the graphic itself remains really small.
She cannot remember doing anything unusual and we've updated Xchange and restarted her computer, but that didn't do it.

I've attached a screendump from the Editor showing a Perimeter line scaled to 72 pt. As you can see the line remains the same...

Thank you in advance.

'But I never pushed THOSE buttons!' my colleague assures me :lol:

I cannot find this combination documented anywhere, what is the purpose?

Hi MJN,

Not a problem! This is documented here:
https://help.tracker-software.com/pdfxe ... ts_ed.html

It's to allow for more precise editing when there are lots of intersecting lines, so that you can properly see their intersections. Adobe also have the same feature and, I believe, it is mapped to the same key combo.

Cheers,
