I have a polyline in my drawing, consisting of arcs and lines all joined together. It is a waterline and I cannot get it to reverse.. it is reading ----M----- instead of -----W-----
Perhaps your linetype definition uses a U value for angle, so the text remains upright (to the U value, so 180 would make it upside down) no matter how the object is rotated. Take a look at the linetype file and see if this could be your issue.
Matt, I assume he used the Reverse command. That doesn't work on U-coded linetypes.
Its possible that the OP does not have the .LIN file.
In that case, you could use TO-LIN.LSP to extract the linetype definition to a file for inspection.
The solution to this ended up being simple. Once selecting the line, in the bottom of the properties box there is an option for "Linetype Generation", it was disabled. Once enabling, all was fixed.
Thank for the suggestion guys!
Boy do I feel dumb for not getting that one! I knew that contolled where the patterns fall, but I had no idea it would affect the rotation of the lettering. So, in your linetype, you're using U coding for angle, plus Linetype Generation turned on?
