    Default Hidden Line dash sizes...

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    How do I decrease the dash size of my hidden line layer? When I goto to finish everything up in layout 1 my hidden lines are so big that on certain parts of the model it appears as just a solid green line.

    I am using autocad 2008, and I created my viewports using the solview command, then used the soldraw command to create a 2d drawing of the model. Thanks.

    Nevermind, just found the command, like right after I posted this, haha. LTSCALE, while in the layer that you want to change, in case anyone else wanted to know.

    Another variable you may like to investigate related to this is PSLTSCALE.

    And you can also add more hidden/dashed styles in your linetype file (acad.lin). I have a hidden, hidden2, hidden3, hidden4, and hidden5 added to mine with varying lengths and spaces between. If you're good you can even make them to come out at a scale for applications such as centerline striping.
