LT2014 Display Problem

After upgrading to LT2014, I am having problems with one of our drawing files.  The particular file is our xplan which has several external references.  This xplan file is then referenced into our working drawings.  Sometime this morning, the xplan became unusable due to text, blocks, lines displaying much larger than they are.  These objects show up as large colored circles in model space.  I have attached a screen shot of what it looks like to help explain what is happening.  The strange thing is the working drawings display the xplan correctly.  We just can't work in the xplan.


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the Forums


That looks like your lineweights are getting in the way.


Look at the bottom of your Autocad screen and you will see a row of 12 icons some are highlighted blue and some are grey. Find the one which is the fifth from the right (A cross which is highlighted blue) and click it so it is now grey

Alternatively at the command line type LWDISPLAY and change the setting to OFF

Thanks for the solution.  My employee must have hit that button and didn't know he did it.  I suspected that it was a drawing setting but could not not figure it out.


Thanks again.  This is a great forum!
