Line display weighting button - only 2 thicknesses

So this line weighting toggle button only does 2 thicknesses...  one is super thin and one is super thick.  Wonder why this button has multiple levels of thickness. that is deceiving. This needs to be improved.  There are only 2 choices there... barely see the line or wayyy too thick line.

Look at the tool bar.. find the Display line weights button there.  Hover over all the buttons to find it. It shows 4 types of lines, but when you click it it only thickens 2 different levels.

Actually, first you need to use Fill and sign tool and add a Circle or it is more of a flattened circle. add that to the page.

Then go to that button i talked about... the display line weights. All it does is thin out the lines. it is either really thin or really thick. The button picture makes it look like there are more levels. Deceiving.

You could go through the tool buttons and find the one with lines.  I inserted the photo there. 

Anyway, remember to first add a circle from the Fill and Sign tool and then click this.  it toggles between a thin line and thick line unlike what that button shows. Weird that they show all those levels of thickness.line weighting.png

When you reply to a thread you're automatically subscribed to it, which means an email will be sent to you each time someone replies in that thread. You can also do it manually by opening that thread and clicking the Follow button at the top right-hand corner.

Hi GmoProA,

Please make sure that you are checking the same email account that you use to sign-in to the Adobe forums.

Regarding the issue, the "Line Thickness" tool that you are referring to, is a Comment tool.

It is used to change the thickness of the "Drawing tools" that you create on the PDF in the Comment section.

Please check and let us know if you are adding the circle using the Comment tool or the Fill & Sign tool.

If possible please share the screenshot of the page once you create the circle and after changing the Line thickness.

Regards,

Meenakshi

Yeah it is the same email. it is the email that i have for this account.  I am not getting any alerts anyway to any of my emails. It isnt working.

And the other comment is about that line thickness icon. that icon only changes thickness in the circles that are from FILL & SIGN.

It does nothing to circles created from the Comments Tool bar.  So it does alter the circle or shape from the FILL & SIGN tool bar, BUT....  it only toggles very thin or very thick.  Only 2 results, yet that icon has all those line thicknesses..just strange and shouldnt show all those thicknesses. Not sure who chose that icon.

@gmoProA   :  Only 5 year later...  

  • You need to use the "Comment" tool to get a smaller / more precise circle, square, etc.  I'm uncertain if this functionality existed in 2018 - but it does not.  It's much better than the binary option with the "Sign and Fill" tool.
