I work very closely with a customer, and have been asked to implement their drafting standards for a dwg file they received from another vendor. I have attached two drawings, 1 (their vendor's) and 2 (mine, in progress). When opened, I notice the linetype scale *appears* different between the drawings (note the differences within "LINE LEGEND" section of both drawings). It *appears* as though Drawing 2 has double the linetype scale of Drawing 1.
I realize that within Drawing 2 I could set the LTSCALE variable to 0.5, but that seems like a work-around and may cause problems with other aspects of the customer's drafting standards in the future.
I've already confirmed that both drawings have the same values for LTSCALE, PSLTSCALE, MSLTSCALE, CELTSCALE. I've also already confirmed that, for the "PACKAGED EQUIPMENT" entry with the legend, the properties dialog box shows the exact same values for all fields. Lastly, (trying the advice of http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/AutoCAD-2011/ltscale
I'd like to have them both appear the same, if possible. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
When I open drawing 1 I get an ltscale = .5. Drawing 2 shows an ltscale = 1. So it appears that you given a file that already had an error, if in fact their standard is 1.0.
Well that settles it... I'm an idiot!
When I first noticed this problem, I must've been more confused than I thought regarding the LTSCALE, PSLTSCALE, MSLTSCALE, and CELTSCALE variables (I just learned about them).
Thanks for double checking my claims! I would have sworn I really did do those steps already.
