Utility Line Style Changes

180 Views, 6 Replies
05-09-2014 01:43 PM

I have a proposed utility file.  In this file, the line styles say "W" for watermain, "SAN" for sanitary, etc.  When I reference this file into my plan and profile sheets the line style does not carry over, instead it just shows up as a continuous line.  However, when I use the NCOPY command on one of these lines, it is placed in my drawing using the correct line style.

 

I have the lineweight button at the bottom turned on.

 

Can anyone help with this?

Load those linetypes into your current drawing and they should work.

Verify these setting variables:

 

Ltscale=1

Psltscale=1

Ltscale=1

 

Also make sure Annotation Scaling is toggled on.

Also enter STYLE @ command line and verify the Text style associated to the Linetypes is set to a height of zero.

One more variable is MSLTSCALE. And try different LTSCALEs in case 1 isn't what yours needs.
