Centerline Sore Spot

I have drawings that are in 1:12 scale, and when I add some sketched
centerlines, phantom lines, or whatever, the dashes and dots are so small
that when I print it they look like continuous lines. Is there a way to
make the scale of the lines increase, and if so can it be done
automatically? I use LTSCALE for this sort of thing in AutoCAD.

Have a look at the Standards dialog General tab. There is a scale field on
the right; you might try changing that.

Thanks, I just tried it and that does make the size of the dashes longer so
they are visible, but... my centermarks are now way to big. They went from
about 1" to 12" and look funny marking a 3/8 hole. Any other ideas?

You can set cL size in the Standards as well so I would imagine they could
be reduced by the same amount you increased the scale.
