Hello all, I have a quick question; I have always left my ltscale @ 1, but I ran a cross this question on a test.
"What is the Ltscale fact for a drawing plot size=200x150 and limits=(0.00,0.00) (600.00,450.00)
on the test it is multiplt chose 2, 3, 4 and UCSVP
I don't want the answer just how do I figuare ltscalt factor?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Solved! by Patchy. See the answer in context.
No option for 1 (and that is the magical number that evrybody used)
2, 4, ucsvp don't make any sense.
Limits is 3 times the drawing plot size so I picked 3
Will it be the correct answer? I don't know.
If you have a drawing in model space that is 600 x 450 and your going to plot 200 x 150 your LTScale should be set at 3.
E.g. your plot size is 3 x the Limits size.
This test question must be very old because I haven't needed to use LTScale in a long time.
And is there still anyone out there who uses or sets Limits ???
For more recent versions of Autocad you're best to set your LTScale at 1, set your PSLTScale at 1 and set the MSLTScale variable to 1.
Once you have these settings you'll never have to reset LTScale again as your dashed and center linetypes will always show correct in both model and paper space.
..also make sure CELTSCALE is 1...
I'm using ACAD 13 and I've used 12, 10 etc. I have never gotten my ltscale to work correctly set at one. It's usually so difficult to find the right setting I switch to acrmap or something else if I have a lot of line types. I've seen this answer quite often, is there a variable or something I'm missing?
ltscale = 1
msltscale = 1
If you use those settings your linetypes should display pretty good.
You should also never have to reset them when switching from model to paperspace.
Personally, I have LTScale at 0.5 as I like my hidden, dashed and centerline closer spaced.
That's just personal preference.
All I get is a continuous line. Does it have anything to do with then number of vertex on the line? They are always lwpolylines too, could that be it? Any suggestions would help, I've been trying to figure out why this doesn't work for me for a long time.
