    Default Batting

    When I use the Layer BATTING to depict Insulation it works great on the Model but when I flick to the LAYOUT it is all over the place and not neatly within the Rectangle area - Could anyone advise me on this please

    Hello there....
    We need more information, can you explain a "Layer" for "BATTING"? Do you mean a linetype for batting? (using an .shx (shape) file or maybe a font)

    Can you post a screen shot of both situations (Model and Layout)? or even better, post a sample drawing file (.dwg)?

    This is just a guess but it "could be" (if using a text style such as "standard"), that the style has an assigned height other then zero, or an annotative scale issue.

    Check your LTSCALE, PSLTSCALE & MSLTSCALE settings.

    LTSCALE: Sets the global linetype scale factor.
    PSLTSCALE: Controls the linetype scaling of objects displayed in paper space viewports.
    MSLTSCALE: Scales linetypes displayed on the model tab by the annotation scale.

    Most likely, you'll need to change PSLTSCALE to a value of 1.

    Please take your DWG file, erase everything except the linetype/hatch (whatever the object in question is) and any boundaries for it. Then SAVEAS a new file, PURGE it, then ZIP it up and attach it here.

    We are just guessing otherwise.

    The original post was in November... we haven't heard a peep from them since.
    I would be interested to know what the OP's situation is/was.
