    Line Properties Changing in Paper Space

    Hello,

    I'm having trouble with a drawing file (I'm modifying a file that was already created). I have several lines in model space with different line types (dash dash, dash dot, dash dot dot, etc.); in model space everything looks great, but when I switch to my layout tab, all the lines in the view port show as continuous, both on the screen and plotted/printed.

    The legend has these lines drawn in paper space on the same layer, and they show their properties correctly. It's just the model space lines which show as continuous.

    Thanks,
    Nadya

    For linetypes to appear same in MS as PS, set PSLTSCALE=0 (assuming vport zoom scale is same as the ltscale).

    Another method for linetypes to appear correctly, in PS only, is to set LTSCALE and PSLTSCALE = 1.

    That's a common question, has come up on this site a few times lately.
