Linetypes 2004 to 2005 & 2008

Postby Michael O'Connor » Wed May 07, 2008 9:27 am

There was a linetype scale factor under Draw Modes in the Settings pick box of the snaps toolbar. Where did this go?
I relied on that option to scale the fenceline linetypes and others.
I'm not having any luck in 2005 & 2008 with scaling linetypes

On the top toolbar, under MODIFY, click PROPETIES to bring up the _ENTPROP command.

You can select the line or lines you want to modify with a pick box, fence, window, etc. Once you have all the lines (or other entitites) you want to modify selected, hit the space bar or ENTER. You'll be taken to a dialogue box titled ENITY PROPERTIES.

In the upper right hand corner of the box, you'll see a window for "Linetype scale". This is where you can mdofiy the scale for the lines in your selection set.

Hope this helps...

Thanks Ian. The line spacing is relatively good, it is the symbol size that proportion is lost. The circle and/or square do not proportion as they did in 2004.
I'm not the greatest CAD guy, and I've been scratching my head for a while trying to find what once was a very simple control.
