Line Types

Postby dcool1 » Mon Apr 04, 2022 4:53 pm

I'm having some trouble with line types behaving differently in different files/projects. The alphabet line types "--- C ---- C ----" default to huge letters that I have to scale down to 0.05 or 0.1 just to make sense. The letters are very clustered together making it aesthetically unpleasing. Hoping I have more control over the linetypes in the linetype manager. Saw some info on modifying the ".lin" files in Program Files but I have to open in NotePad and cannot save it back as a ".lin" - any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Check the values of your line type scale with comment LTSCALE. Note Carlson resets the LTSCALE variable when you change drawing settings.

The line types using text characters will be dependent on the settings in the text style so check to see if the height and font are set to the same in each drawing.
