Linestyle Scaling Issues

Question asked by Ryan Helminen on Mar 23, 2015

I am having issues using different linestyles when editing symbols in Solidworks Electrical.

 

Basically what is happening is if I use a hidden linestyle when editing a symbol that is setup to use metric units, if I then use the symbol in a schematic that uses Imperial units the spacing of the lines doesn't scale correctly. This ends up causing dashed lines to look as if they are solid.

 

The same thing occurs if I try to convert the symbol drawing over to Imperial units and use the same hidden linetype.

 

Does anyone know of a workaround for this, or will I have to resort to drawing dashed lines as multiple segments?

 

Thanks,

Ryan
