I have a problem with line type scale for hidden line it appears different line type scale in another drawing, al though the setting for line type scale & Global scale factor is same for both the drawings. Is there any other setting for the line type.
Solved! Go to Solution.
it may be possible, that one drawing is started with imperial settings and the other drawing is based on metric units.
Therefor AutoCAD loads the linetype from ACAD.LIN or in the second case from ACADISO.LIN ==> and within these two linetype-definition-files the distances are different.
To get it solved you can:
The easier way, if you don't have any special settings, any special layouts:
>> the setting for line type scale & Global scale factor is same for both the drawings
Just to make sure, there are three global settings to compare
and last but not least you could have assigned every object a different linetype-scale-factor

Alfred is right in saying that the CAD file is using a different LIN file (because one drawing started with a metric template, and the other with an imperial template).
However, Alfred's method to solve the issue is the long-way-around, (sorry, Alfred) and there is a much EASIER way to fix your lines.
1. Enter the command MEASUREMENT (note: NOT "Measure") and set the value to either 0 (zero - to load imperial linetypes) or a value of 1 (one - to load metric linetypes)
2. Then, enter the command LINETYPE, click the LOAD button, and from the LIN file being displayed, select all the linetypes shown in the window and click OK, and when the "Relaod Linetypes" dialog appears, select "Reload ALL Selected Linetypes" and click OK twice to get back to the command line
3. Back in your drawing, enter the command REGENALL, and set the LTSCALE accordingly.
you are right, that is a faster way than mine ... without one exception: I'm sure that my way works to get the same linetype from another drawing.
Your way assumes that the linetype in the "source-drawing" (to which it's compared) comes from an unmodified ACAD.LIN or ACADISO.LIN
Anyway, under normal circumstances and with AutoCAD-defined linetype-names your way is really faster
BTW: if you select the correct linetype-file you even won't have toset MEASUREMENT or MEASUREINIT before (one less step ==> more faster then)
