"show diam" does this when the zoom level is such that narrow diameters map to a fraction of a pixel. Print the image to a PostScript or Idraw file, then convert that into a PDF and, if the conversion uses antialiasing, very thin neurites should (might?) show up as grey firstname.lastname@example.org wrote:the dendrites and axon become thin & discontinuous
Run NEURON under MSWin on your Mac.rather than getting fatter as they do on Windows. Is there a fix for this?
"Nah, that defeats the purpose of having a Mac. Can't I change the length/diameter ratios in Shape and PlotShape graphs by scaling up all diameters by some constant, e.g. maybe 5 or 10?"
No, but you can change the length/diameter ratios by making Shape or PlotShape graphs scale all lengths down by a multiplicative factor like 0.2 or 0.1. Read the Programmer's Reference entry about the Shape class's len_scale method.
