Is there a way to change all red lines in a drawing to hairlines? IE I need to pick the Color but change the line width.

Yes go to edit, find and replace and then find objects, now select the outlines tab and then check the outline properties, We then select the pen color now select OK and then Find all.

It will select all of the lines you have requested you can now make a global change to those selected lines.

What mike said .......
We get a lot of corel and other files and we specify when they sent that red is cut and black is engrave in those cases here are a few tips when finding objects , your "red" might not be the drawings red , so the best thing is to click a red line and get its properties and use that whan you edit/find , and once you find everything it speeds up things if you group em.
You can save a edit/find search such as find red , find RGB red etc.
Very few people use what is essentially a selection set filter . Its extremely useful , you can use multiple criteria to filter VERY specifically.

You need to click "Next" in that wizard and it will show a page with 4 tabs. I am using v10 and it is in mine and the Find and Replace does as Mike says.

Well, now I can't seem to get it to work again!
I check the properties and it says RED. I try to find red and it's not there.
