I'm not much into viewports, but the guru who is, is having difficulty with this one...
He has a overall "Master" drawing.
He creates 2 viewports that reference this overall drawing on the same page:
- An overall "thumb view" of the drawing at 1"=30'-0".
- A zoomed-in view at 1/8"=1'-0" scale.
For the linetypes (dashdotx2) to look proportionate, the overall 1:30 scale viewport should
have a LTSCALE of 45, while the 1/8 scale viewport should have a LTSCALE of 18.
How to do this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
If LTSCALE, MSLTSCALE, PSLTSCALE and CELTSCALE are all 1, then AutoCAD will scale the linetypes correctly regardless of the viewport scale.
This tutorial may help to explain how the different values stack up:
