Dashed lines become continous in curves - is there a system setting?

Hello!

I am having trouble presenting segmented lines with a dashed line type in AutoCadMap 3D 2011. When the segments are small (as in curves) the dashes float together and the lines appear to be continous. This is not the case in for example TopoCad and ArcGIS.

Is there some kind of system setting in AutoCad where you can chose drawing technique? So that the dashed line segment starts with the blank part instead of the dashed?

Hi,

 

two options to check that:

  • one is to verify the settings LSCALE, PSLTSCALE and MSLTSCAE, these define how the scaling of the linetype is, the last to ones also depending on the viewport-scale (plot-scale).
  • the second may be for polylines if the vertices are to close together (for the spacing-distance of the linetpe). For that each polyline has the property Ltype-Gen (>>>click<<<).

Thankyou so much for your help. 

Your second suggestion - setting of parameter ltypegen seems to be exactly what I was looking for!
My polylines now look exactly like I want yhem to look.
Once again thankyou.

Kristina
