    Default Dashed lines showing up as solids in layout area and when plotting

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I guess the title pretty much says it all Dashed lines in my drawing turn solid when i switch to the layout area, and when i try to plot. I've tried fiddling with line type scale, but it hasn't solved the problem. I've attached one of the drawings i'm having trouble with. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Oh and in case anyone is interested it's part of the rear end of an electric handicap scooter, that i'm building for a school project.

    Edit: I think i might have figured it out, when i set lts to 0.05 the show up fine in the layout area, but in the drawing are it looks like the line type scale is way too low. Can anyone figure out why the dashed lines don't show up the same in the drawing and layout areas?

    I did not look at your drawing yet, but I suspect you need to look into PSLTSCALE, MSLTSCALE, and LTSCALE - in that order.
