Linetype changing scales

I am using Map 3D 2013


I have several drawings in which I want to use a linetype (centrex2) at a specific scale. The scale setting is exactly the same in all the drawings but in some the linetype is coming out at different scales, all larger, but not the same or to a set factor. All the entities in question are polylines (2d).


I have checked in all drawings that:


  • global scale factor and current object scale in the linetype manager are the same (1.0)
  • drawing units are the same (unitless)
  • ‘use paper space units for scaling’ is always deselected
  • linetype generation is always enabled


Any other suggestions gratefully received

Hi Graham,

Do you mind sending a drawing that shows the issue?

Ideally, use eTransmit to create a pack of files that are used by this drawing (in case you are using a custon linetype).
