Orientation of text in custom linetypes
SAFeSTeR posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceI'm using a couple of custom linetypes which I created and one is reading logically (ELEC) but when I changed to another linetype (GAS) the text reads as it follows the direction of the polyline. I didn't expect it to read logically but it looks better on the drawing. I created both linetypes and followed similar formatting (see below) so I've no idea why this is happening. Does anyone know how to achieve this purposely so all read logically? *ELECTRIC,Electric Cables -- ELEC ---- ELEC ---- ELEC -- A,0.5,-0.3,["ELEC",Text - Arial,s=0.1,r=0,x=-0.175,y=-0.05],-0.3 *GAS,Gas Pipes -- GAS ---- GAS ---- GAS -- A,0.5,-0.3,["GAS",Text - Arial,s=0.1,r=0,x=-0.15,y=-0.05],-0.3
Linetypes embedded in drawings? How to edit?
SAFeSTeR posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceHi, I've inherited some drawings which use a lot of custom linetypes which seem to be embedded into the drawing itself. I want to edit them but am unable to locate them. I've checked the acad.lin and they are not found there. Is there any way I can edit them from within the drawing or will I have to create new linetypes and replace / purge the existing ones out? Thanks in advance.
