This just started to happen to a single electrical drawing. When I go to insert a wire the wire is shown as a hidden linetype. Normally the wire would be solid when I insert it. I can manually change but that a pain. When I double click the line instead of the linetype being "bylayer" it is "hidden". Has anybody else ran into this problem.
Thanks for the help
Have you changed the active layer to something which has a hidden line type?
enter the following on the command line:
Check your linetype settings in here, you may have changed the line type or are on one of the layers which uses the hidden line type.
edit: I didnt read the second part of your post correctly, on the layer you are drawing your line on it sounds like you have manualy changed it to hidden instead of by layer, open up 'Properties' tool palett from Tools>Toolbars>AutoCad and change the line type to By Layer
on the properties toolbar (shown in the attached pic) is the line type set to hidden before you draw the wire?
If it is change it to By Layer then try drawing the line again.
See if this works
