    Default Batting disappears after having Acad opened for a few min.

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    So i was drawing plans and decided to use the batting linetype for the insulation.
    i decided to stop for the day, saved the whole thing, then opened it the other day.
    When i opened it the batting was still there (all in the correct linetype scale) but after working in the file for a while the batting was gone and replaced by a regular line.
    I tried the MSLTSCALE, LTSCALE and all those other commands but it doenst change the line into batting...
    I'm working on a 2014 Autocad student version.
    Anyone who knows what to do?

    Well, something changed. It just didn't vanish on it's own.

    That linetype references the shape file named "ltypeshp.shx". Check your textstyles and make sure none of them are *trying* to use this file as a font (fonts and shapes share the file extension .SHX).

    Otherwise, temporarily go with LTSCALE = 1, MSLTSCALE = 0 as a test for that.

    Post the drawing if you don't get anywhere.

    Tried setting the MSLTSCALE back to 0, and the first time i used 'REGENALL' it brought back some of the batting.
    So i did the same commands again and it brought back all the batting.. Odd, anyway thanks for replying, helped me out
    Thanks!

    That then, points to a video processor that is too small.
    The S197 gen Ford Mustang, and the F-4 Phantom both prove the same theory. "With enough power applied, a school bus will fly."

    +1, that was what I was thinking too.
    Volume and repetition do not validate opinions forged in the absence of thought.
