    Red face Hidden dashed line not showing up in paperspace

    Hi there,

    I am trying to plot a demolition plan with the dashed lines. The lines show up dashed in my modelspace, however, when I switch over to layout to plot it, my dashed lines do not show up. Any ideas or suggestions as to what I can do to fix it?
    -Thanks! : )

    Hi Suzyq,

    First, Welcome to AUGI and congrats on your first post

    Do the lines show up at all? If they do then it's probably the LTSCALE or PSLTSCALE setting. These control scale of dashed lines. Personally I set both of these at 1 which uses the plot scale in paperspace to determine the linetype spacing.

    If the lines are not showing up at all check to see if the layer has been turned off in the viewport.

    Hope this helps,

    Some see the glass as half full, others as half empty. As an engineer I see the glass as twice as big as it needs to be. ~Unknown~

    If that doesn't work try setting your MSLTSCALE to 1?
