LineWeight Cell (Line Format Section)

Determines the line weight of a shape. Set the line weight by entering a number with a valid unit of measure.

You can also set the value of LineWeight in the Line dialog box (on the Home tab, in the Shape group, click Line, point to Weight, and then click More Lines).

If the unit of measure is not entered, the unit of measure for text specified in the Visio Options dialog box is used (click the File tab, and then click Options). Line weight is independent of the scale of the drawing. If the drawing is scaled, the line weight remains the same.
