Hi,

 

>> Could you clarfiy how I can get

If you look in my previous answer I have created a hyperlink exactly to the help for command _VIEWRES, so you should read there about the command, what it does and how to start it. Just click on the ">>>details<<<"-link.

 

>> What explains all of dashed lines change to solid line at same time with circles?

With every regeneration all displayed objects are refreshed according to the current view. If your linetypes are set to a low value then the refresh shows it like continuous (density to high to be displayed).

So verify how to use MSLTSCALE, PSLTSCALE and LTSCALE (systemvariables controlling how linetype-scaling is calculated in dependence to zoom-factor or annotationscale).

Have you considered adding a line in the acad2008doc.lsp file. if I want to control a variable or setting, I add a line at the bottom of this file.

(Command "viewres" "yes" "20000")

This allows me to set the variable or setting consistently. If you have you support files on a server for everyone, it allows everyone to have the settings.

Hi,

 

>> adding a line in the acad2008doc.lsp file

Sorry to say, but please don't modify the ACADxxxxDOC.LSP (the one with the version number in the filename) as it is used AutoCAD-internally/reserved. You should use the ACADDOC.LSP instead.

Look therefor to the warning >>>here<<<.

Alfred;

I stand corrected.  Thanksw for pointing it out. We've been modifing tha acadXXXXdoc.lsp for years and we never had a problem. I never noticed the warning before. I guess we've been lucky.

 

With that said, I still suggest modifying the acaddoc.lsp file to control variables and settings.
