How can I view the lines in butt joined styles instead of beveled or whatever you may call it.

Please have a look at the attached.

 

Thanks,

When you use Continuous linetype it will fillet the corners, pick a different linetype and it will butt joint.

I tried using different linetypes (dashed, iso dash, double dash  etc.) and scaling them so that they look continuous, but it still looks filleted.

 

Is there something I'm missing

Use polylines.

Please see attached.

 

It's a polyline, not using BYLAYER nor CONTINUOUS and I'm still getting the beveled ends.

Can you please show me how to do this step by step?

 

Thanks

Patchy said Continuous, not "scale them so they look continuous". You have not said that you tries the continuous linetype.

That's why I said I tried not using 'continuous' and 'bylayer' (equivalent to continuous as default), since I already have done them previously.

 

 

 

Patchy, I understand your method now, but is there a way to have lineWIDTH set to zero and adjust lineWEIGHT instead and still have the line show up with non-filleted edges?

 

Thanks,
