The only thing holding be back for ditching that terrible massive, nonsense bloated, pdf file locking(notes) Acrobat ?Reader, is the processing of drawings compared to this lovely lightweight Sumatrapdf

At the moment Sumatra give such thin lines(layer VIS,VIS if pushed towards PDF during export) they are barely shown. *example doc below.

Would it be possible to adjust its processing output to equal Acrobat/Xreader/Firefox/...?

Example files output difference; Source pdf + Sumatra output(scanned prints Adobe vs Sumatra)

@Canule this is a duplicate of #1034 and Some lines rendered too light #624 where kjk links to a request to NOT make BAD lines thicker as Acrobat does, the first scanned file was produced by a craftsman who was trained in the value of thickness, the CAD file was not.

Here are the results of ensuring your file meets DIN/ISO standard I see no problem with this file
[removed] A3 sample modified to minimum line thickness of 0.18 as recommended by CAD standards.

Thank you for the awareness, I had no idea Adobe had such dirty function enabled by default(made necessarily) discouraging the source output to be towards DIN/ISO.

I imagine that Adobe function is probably the cause the CAD(EPLAN) software and its own product macro's(as in example drawing of that Rital panel) being without line thickness / not applied on PDF export / no warnings of it during the checkup of the object based electrical scheme.

I note you have removed your sample and have removed my link accordingly
