Another flow direction question

173 Views, 4 Replies

I have a linetype

*DIVERSION_LARGE,diversion large ---- >> ---- >> ---- >> ---- A,.5,-.2,["<<",standard,S=.15,r=0,U=0.0,X=-0.1,Y=-.05],-.2

 

when I draw a polyline, or use it as the linetype in a feature line style, the arrows seem to revrse whenever there is a change in direction any significance. Also, the reverse command and reversefeature command have no effect. Rotating a segment does not change the direction. I know I must be missing something.

 

in the attached, I have a feature line, and a polyline that the arrows change direction when the feature does.

 

 

thank you in advance for your help

Try getting rid of the "u=0.0" portion of the linetype definition. This was added to linetypes to make the linetype "plan readable" which, you don't want.

no dice. I don't understand why the reverse command doesn't work.for plines or feature lines.

Um.. I think line types are defined either left to right or right to left not both

Thank you

Reverse work fine for us. Did you reload the linetype after saving Brian's revision and then regen the display? The regen is required to see the change.
