Setting the linetype scale

You can specify the linetype scale. The smaller the scale, the more repetitions of the linetype pattern are generated per drawing unit. For example, a linetype pattern is defined as a sequence of dashed lines and open spaces, each 0.25 units long. The linetype scale uses the drawing scale factor to determine the length. A scale factor of .5 would reduce the length of each line and space to 0.125 units; a scale factor of 2 would increase the length of each to .5 units.


NOTE Setting the linetype scale too large or too small may result in a line pattern looking like a solid line, depending on what the scale view is or at what scale the drawing is printed.


You can control a new entity's individual linetype scale factor as well as the overall or global scale factor applied to all the entities in the drawing.

To set the current individual linetype scale

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Settings > Drawing Settings.
    • On the Settings toolbar, click the Drawing Settings tool ().
    • Type settings and then press Enter.
  2. Click the Entity Creation tab.
  3. In the Linetype Scale field, type or choose the linetype scale that you want to make current.
  4. Click OK.

To change the global linetype scale

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Settings > Drawing Settings.
    • On the Settings toolbar, click the Drawing Settings tool ().
    • Type settings and then press Enter.
  2. Click the Entity Creation tab.
  3. In the Global Linetype Scale field, type or choose the global linetype scale that you want to change.
  4. Click OK.
