    hidden line won't display in model or paper space

    I recently reloaded 2004 onto a new computer and I cannot get hidden lines to display in either the model space or paper space. When I select the hidden line in model space I can see the dashes as dots in between solid lines, as if the line were superimposed on top of a continuous line, which it is not. Changing the scale changes the size of the dash, but again it's only visible if you select the line. I'm stumped.

    Check your Autocad Help files for information on LTSCALE and PSLTSCALE.

    Do the line's ends have a significant difference in Z coordinates?

    Try the following-

    Go into model space and Select All
    Open the properties box and change the linetype scale to 0.5
    Close the properties box
    Type in- CELTSCALE
    Type in- 0.5
    Type in- PSLTSCALE
    Type in- 1

    All dashed lines, (existing and new lines), should now appear in paperspace, and will plot, with dashes about 3mm long with 1.5mm gap – in all viewports regardless of the viewport scale.
    Im intelligent enough to know that I dont know everything; but I'll tell you all about it anyway.

    I have started a new template with a layer dedicated to one line type, a border dash dot dot that is the layer line type. I followed the directions from Nukecad and the line type shows in the model tab but is a continuous line in the layout tab in paper space and model space. What other option am I missing? Thanks for any help.
