Printing OpenOffice drawing without thick contour lines??

I recently created a technical drawing using the excellent OpenOffice Draw program under Linux. I now am trying to print it under a version of OpenOffice Draw being used under Windows 98 by transferring the file to Windows through a floppy.

Only problem is that under the Windows version of OpenOffice Draw the drawing ends up being printed with thick lines. Even though it appears on the screen in the thin lines which are preferable to technical/architectural type drawings.

I have tried all kinds of combinations of line contours on and off (set through the Modify/Options page) to no avail.

How can I priint a drawing made in OpenOffice Draw in such a way that what gets printed comes out with the same line widths as what shows up on the screen? When being edited through OpenOffice Draw under Windows?

Any input or insight on this would be greatly appreciated. I don't think it has anything to do with trying to print a file created under OpenOffice Draw under Linux, under Windows. For all I know printing under Linux (if I had that set up would cause the same problem).
