Fenceline not displaying

Post by casual22 » Wed Jun 07, 2006 9:02 am

I am trying to draw a fence line using the fenceline2 linetype lines with squares. It is displaying a dashed line on the screen. Also the fenceline with circles does not display correctly. The fence line with x's displays correctly also the overhead utility lines is correct. Any suggestions.

A few things to check:

Mke sure you have all the service patches installed for MSCAD2005. (SP#1.3 is the current one - if you don't have this then please install all patches to bring you up to this patch - do not skip any)

Those linetypes use a special font file called ltypeshp.shx, please make sure this file exists in the MSCAD2005\Fonts folder.

Make sure that the path to the fonts is set correctly - go to the options command and check the path for fonts to make sure it is= C:\Program Files\MicroSurvey\MSCAD2005\Fonts.
