How do I make smooth or smooth out 45 degree lines? TurboCAD is making them look ragged. Not good.

for 1, that's about a 15 degree line, so check the start and endpoints, alonf with thickness and if super fine resolution.

Check if Anti-Alias is checked and what resolution you are using.

Thanks Mitch, checking anti-alias made it better! I might have asked this in an earlier post, but I can't lower the pen weight progressively so that it's super fine. Lower than about 0.010" nothing happens. Any ideas on how to get the pen weight to better respond?
Also, can you have a look at one of my earlier posts that I never got a response to? The one about moving an object?
Thanks

I drew a series of lines and set them to .002 through .020. The lines .002, .005, and .010 all look to be the same on my display but do show a difference when printed. I would suspect the line thicknesses on my display are a hardware limitation.

Enjoy
