Alignment line/curve LTscale wont change

1034 Views, 9 Replies

I am setting up a template for my company and have noticed that I can't change the line/curve/spiral LTscale:

 

I have chosen a layer with the CENTER linetype for my line/curve/spiral in the style editor. The Alignment appears correctly with the CENTER linetype. However I want to make the dashes a bit bigger, so I change the LTscale in the style editor to 4, but then nothing changes.

 

When I change the same setting for the "line_extensions" element to the same layer, these WILL update when changing the LTscale.

 

All my LTSCALE, PSLTSCALE, MSLTSCALE are set to 1. 

 

All other lines, such as polylines and featurelines, as well as the line extension lines of the alignment update correctly. Its just the alignment line.curve/spiral elements that do not.......

 

Are these locked somewhere?

Im using C3D12, and do not exhibit this behavior

When I change the LT Scale in the style to 4 the entire alignment linetype increases in size.

 

If you looking for a little more control, you may want to resort to a custom linetype.

Hmm strange. I will have to try it tomorrow on my works computer. It might just be a bug on my home laptop....

 

Thanks for checking this.

= Alignment and profile line/curve LTscale wont change

10-20-2012 08:47 AM in reply to: NeilSpoon

I'm setting up an alignment and a profile style that I've use during the last 6 months. This week the LTSCALE doesn't work, I change the value to 5, 10, 20 and nothing happens. It's affecting no only the model drawing but also the layouts and consequently the plotted sheets.

Same thing, all other lines, such as polylines and featurelines, as well as the line extension lines of the alignment update correctly.

 

Can anyone help?. We know that this doesn't happen in some computers, but we need a solution to our problem.

I have the same problem. Civil 3D 2012. Alignment linetype change but LT Scale in the Alignment Style is always the same, whatever number I give it. On the Profile Style, it works perfectly...

It's like the alignment only have ONE SCALE.

I have also experienced this problem with Feature lines and survey figures. I don't have a solution to the problem but my workaround has been to change the global ltscale to the value that suits my needs. Unfortunately this requires all linetypes to be scaled the same in the .lin file because it scales every line type by the same amount.

 

Anyways, it may or may not help out.
