    Are you comparing using the same file?

    What is the name of the linetype?

    What have you ruled out so far?

    Yes using same drawing and xref overlay
    Have tried visretain, xref override, ltscale, msltscale, etc
    Tried everything with no luck
    Could it be something to do with autocad 2017
    No problems with other versions of autocad
    Autocad 2011 Lt, autocad 2013 no problem

    It's not a problem with 2017 per say but rather a setting is different and you have not found it yet.

    Is it a particular line type or is it all line types?

    Might want to check your annotation scale and your 'msltscale' settings.
