I have an xref drawn in meters that i have iserted into a drawing that is drawin in millimeters. All the linetypes on the xref are shown solid - how can I adjust the linetype scale of the xref only in this drawing.
This xref is also used in other drawings that are set up in meters so don't want to affect them.
The problem is in the host drawing. to get the right results you need to set LTSCALE appropriatly
if you are in Model space then set LTSCALE to plot scale * 10 then do a REGEN
for example: for scale 1:250 set LTSCALE to 2500
Assuming you plot from Layout the value of LTSCALE must be set relative to the scale in Paper space
which always should be 1:1
also the ratio (zoom scale) between paper space viewport & model space must be set correctly
for 1:100 set ratio to 1/100 for 1:250 ratio to 1/250 ...etc
for plot scale 1=1
set PSLTSCALE & MSLTSCALE to 1
set LTSCALE = 10 (1 * 10) and why is that?
Your linetypes should be loaded from acad.lin file (if you do not sure reload them)
cause it is more suitable to metric (to my taste) yea, i know there is a acadiso.lin that autodesk did declare it to suit metric but i find acad.lin more suitable.
autodesk though did not create acad_mm.lin linetype file so that why you use acad.lin multiple LTSCALE by 10.
the last thing to do is REGENALL
