How do you change the "thickness / darkness" of driven dimensions

I am using solidworks in a bit of differnet way. I created a "part" with about twelve components but each is really a feature NOT a PART in an assembly.

Now I created a "DRAWING" using this "PART" and am trying to dimension it with overall dimensions.

I realize that these are driven dimensions but when I go to print this "DRAWING" they come out so faded that they disappear after a scan or two.

My paper sheet border has the same problem as my dimensions.

All this around the block "stuff" is leading to setting my defaults so that I can be a HAPPY user!!!!


I have attached an example.....notice two dimensions are "ok" (45° and the 3.178" ) I created the entities ( centerlines and intersection points) that they dimension in the drawing so....they are driving.


Can anyone help? PLEASE!!!!


My drafring / DRAWING skills are very poor but I can model!!!!
