The scale factor that you set when you did established the drawing scale factor and knowing the scale factor will help your linetype to appear correctly. The screen will automatically switch to current Layout tab and adjust Ltscale is less than or equal 1 with the Paper size. Let me run through each one in a little more detail. . Can anyone help me with this? For now I can see that perhaps I have too much going on in my current version, and will soon create at least two out of the one to simplify and clarify.
Set them both to one and presto, years of frustration gone. I did find other sites that briefly listed what you posted, but none had instructions that were as easy to follow as yours. This procedure to be done once only. Sometimes we end up to do a trial and error again to get it right. Try out different solutions, and you will see what happens with each one.
There are cases when I have to modify linetype scale or linetype properties, but those are rare. Sets the global linetype scale factor. By default, their values are 1. This 3 steps guide maybe can help. You could also try using the model space scale to preview what the line type scale will look like when you plot it, or create a viewport in paper space and set that to different plot scales. I already change the scale factor to a lower and higher no.
Now that I spent a few more minutes looking it over, I see some areas I can improve that may answer your questions. It shows my dashed and hidden lines with spaces in between. Maybe it will help or maybe it will only confuse you more. For now I can see that perhaps I have too much going on in my current version, and will soon create at least two out of the one to simplify and clarify. Also, that same sheet could be used to explain the various Dimensioning and how multiple layers for dimensions in multiple viewports is necessary, while dimensions in paperspace work well on one layer.
Can anyone help me with this? The thing about the Ltscale and linetypes is that selecting the correct Ltscale is sometimes an art. I strongly suggest you to leave it to 1. The screen will automatically switch to current Layout tab and adjust Ltscale equal 1. The nice thing about annotation scaling is: it has intelligence to show how your objects should look like in different scales. The following steps include directions for typing system variable and command names. Switch to current Layout tab.
Switch to current Layout tab. Almost identical except the green hidden building line would be more accurate and easier to relate to what is being shown. Especially if you already define your own template. The following table lists useful keyboard shortcuts. Maybe it will help or maybe it will only confuse you more.
Not very many people do. But not tonight I hope. By the way, you wouldn't mind would you if a moderator deleted those first two attempts to get a picture in your message, right? Join 979 other followers Sign me up! This procedure to be done once only. If you change this scale factor, the appearance of linetypes in the drawing also changes. Try drawing a line 100mm long to test the linetype scale.
If you work with metric, use metric template. . I am curious if it actually helps or not. The system variable controls whether or not linetypes displayed in the model tab are scaled based on the annotation scale. Maybe it will help or maybe it will only confuse you more. Now that I spent a few more minutes looking it over, I see some areas I can improve that may answer your questions. I have three different layers defined for dashed lines, each with different dash lengths.
