Also on a side note, I just went back and tried "Display as Printed" and it did not fix the main issue I was having. It did prevent the line from being broken up more as I zoomed in, but it did not make the line actually look like a centerline, it was still looked like my first picture (basically 1 big line through my part), which is inadquite in expressing a centerline.
Changing the line type in the properties of the centerline itself seems to be the best option, at least from what I can find.
This is exactly the sort of feedback we as users need and Solid Edge development wants...
I highly encurage you to work with your VAR or call GTAC and submit and Enhancement Request!!!
The display as printed is great when you are getting started to have an idea what the results are going to look like and get a feel for the drating layouts. But once you get your speed up, it's slower to do the work with thick lines on the screen when you are zoomed in. At some point you will switch the display back to not use "display as printed"
There are other settings in the Print > Options dialog that you should look at -
Scale Line Widths and Scale Line Types.
In your case I would suggest that the Scale Line Types should be checked.
I believe that yes print settings do come into play when you are saving as a pdf. Have you tried just saving out as pdf ande seeing what the results look like? I do know that when I've changed centerline settings, the results were never what I expected once I printed. Looked how I wanted on my screen, but didn't look how it was supposed to once printed.
When you convert to pdf, do you use save as or do you use PDF print?
