Schematic Line Breaks not working in Layout View

When I draw schematic lines in model space the breaks appear as they should, but when I go to layout view (Paper Space) the breaks no longer appear.  I have my PSLTSCALE set to zero, but I have tried all settings and nothing seems to work.  I am sure there is a simple setting I am missing.

The "Paper Space LineType SCALE" system variable controls the display of linetypes in a Layout tab. There are two choices: use 0 if you do not want the viewport magnification factor to be applied to linetypes within that viewport; use 1 if you do.

When setting the PSLTSCALE to 1 the linetypes display as expected.
