    Linetype scale

    Tracy Ramsdell

      I can see on the web that this issue continues to frustrate many operators.

      While in a drawing, if I want to say draw something @ 8:1, the hidden line spaces become so small the line looks solid. This has forced me over the years to make room for an isometric, because I can't have hidden lines.

       

      So, instead of wasting time changing the color of menus and icons, hows about working on a problem that has plagued Solidworks since the beginning.

      Autocad has had this feature since the beginning, come on!!

       

      Thanks in Advance

          I have too and I, as well as scores of others, have seen it all along. Try a 6:1 on a d-size sheet; Hidden lines, break lines, center lines, all tiny. Maybe you can fill us all in on what we're doing wrong? Please?

            So easy to dismiss others when clearly you don't know what you're talking about. I wouldn't post it if there wasn't an issue.

            Sheet is a D size with the sheet scale at 2/3, but the view is a custom scale @ 3/2. We use D here for everything, so it's nice to fill up the page so everyone can read it if it's printed on a 8-1/2 x 11. The problem may be in the scaling of sheet to view, but an option to set the line type scale, would be nice on these occasions. Now can I get some real advice?
