Others have different set up, but I typically set the following to 1
You can also look at your annotation visibility icons at the bottom of your screen
I changed them back to 1 and it showed up in p.s. good on the longer lines, but the short ones were still solid, so I changed it to .5 and it worked great.
1. Set LTSCALE, PSLTSCALE, MSLTSCALE & CELTSCALE all to 1
2. In paperspace, draw examples of the standard linetypes that came with AutoCAD (for example, hidden, hidden2 and hiddenX2)
3. Test-print the linetypes at 1:1 scale in paperspace, compare them, and select the ones that you wish to use.
4. In modelspace, set CANNOSCALE to 1/4" = 1'-0". It is found on a list on the taskbar, next to an icon of the end of a drafting scale. The default scale is usually 1:1. Pick 1/4" = 1'-0" from the list.
5. Now select your hidden linetype and start drawing a sample.
6. Switch back to the paperspace tab and create a viewport. Double-click inside it and zoom in to your example. Then double-click outside the viewport to return to paperspace. Click on the viewport to highlight it, and change its scale to 1/4" = 1'-0". You should see the dashed line in the sample, similar to how it shows in modelspace.
Model and Paper space are drawn 1:1 scale, but linetype shows differntly in model space. LTS is 1, PSLTSCALE, MSLTSCALE, CELTSCALE are (1). Any thoughts?
Try going into a viewport,
check use paperspace units for scale
regen might have do do it again
good luck hope this helps
Thank you for your help. For some reason it decided to work after half an hour, without me doing anything, but I will bear your advice regarding linetype manager in mind. This drawing is saved down from Acad 2012, so it may have had something to do with it.
