When i change the ltscale in the child drawing then go to the parent drawing, and reload the xref the ltscale does not update,
I have to detatch the xref and then reattach the xref to get the ltscale to update.
Is there a variable that controls this, very annoying
Any help much appreciated
In my drawing, when I detach and reattach the Xref to get the updated LTSCALE also not responding.
There are two potential problems:
1.Most likely what is going on is that the linetypes that are needed for the xref were not loaded in the current drawing, and thus, they won't display properly. In the current drawing, open the LAYER Manager and look at the linetypes of the xref layers. If the format says "FILENAME|CENTER2" (where "filename" is the name of the attached xref), you simply have to change the linetype to "Center2". You will most likely have to load the Linetypes first.
2. Also, both the xref and current drawing may be using different LIN files (ie. the linetype definition files). In other words, one drawing may be using the ACAD.lin file (ie. imperial) while the other drawing may be using the ACADISO.lin file (ie. metric). To check which LIN file you drawings are using, enter the command MEASUREMENT in both drawings, and if one drawing is set to 0 (imperial) and the other drawing is set to 1 (metric) then set them accordingly, and then simply reload the linetypes using the LINETYPE command,
