custom linetype question

Good day all,

I've been trying to create a linetype that will represent a pavement marking. It should consist of a 10' line with a 20' gap.

I managed to make one but in order for in to show up correctly in my viewport I have to set the linetype scale of that line to whatever my viewport scale is going to be, which causes issues when placing the design into a viewport with a different scale.

Is there a way to create the line so that I can just leave the linetype scale at one and it still break correctly in each vport?

this is the code I had been using.

*BWLL-BTD,10 foot line 20 foot space 1:1
A,10,-20

Thanks for your input,
ervin

Thanks,

That works, but if I change my psltscale to zero linetypes like hidden2 don't show up correctly.

Create a different linetype definition for every scale that you use. Then create a layer for each scale and copy the elements to each layer. You will have duplicate lines but you could then control visibility by viewport depending on the scale.
