I'm using AutoCAD LT 2007 and have a problem with linetype between two drawings. I have a standard key which I use on a number of drawings, problem is when I copy from my original file (in model space) to paper space on another drawing the linetype isn't viewed the same.
I've set LTSCALE to 1. PSLTSCALE to 0, Global scale factor to 1 in both files but still no joy. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Make sure the definition of the Linetype is the same by Loading the linetype again into the problem drawing.
Also, are you making the Paperspace viewport Active when setting PSLTSCALE?
I've tried re-loading the linetype in the problem drawing but this does not alter it in any way.
When i'm copying the key into the new drawing I am simply dropping it onto the drawing sheet template rather than placing it in a viewport.
Does the linetype have text in it? If so, is the style the same in both drawings?
Attached are the 2 files with everything else stripped out;
'Drainage Key' is how I want it to be seen, view this in MS and Ps and note they are the same.
'Problem Drawing' shows the lines i'm having problems with (clouded), linetype dashed.
I want to copy the 'drainage key' into a number of drawings in future as a standard.
MEASUREMENT was '1' for both drawings.
From over here, it looks like the DASHED linetype in those files does not have the same definition. You can tell by looking at the size of the dashes in the linetype pulldown. Neither also *appear* to be out-of-the-box standard, but I wouldn't swear to that.
Either purge out the DASHED linetype from your problem drawing before you paste in the correct one, or identify the LIN file your correct type comes from and reload DASHED from there in your problem drawing.
