ericjhberg posted a question in TroubleshootingJust encountered a new problem I haven't experienced before...I'm guessing it's because of VW2018! So...We have a utilities file where we have applied custom line-types to the different utilities. Because of our workflow, we reference this file into a BASE file that then get's referenced into all of our different design files. The viewports in the design files are rotated, and none of the utility linetypes appear. When you go to the design layer, they are visible in normal Top/Plan, but when you apply a rotated top/plan, they disappear! I just converted this particular project from 2017, where it worked just fine, to 2018 yesterday and only now am I experiencing this issue. We are experiencing similar issues on other 2018 files as well. Why does this always happen...stuff that works just fine somehow becomes broken in new versions. This is BAD!
Hey All, So, after doing a lot of digging through the absolute cluster which are line types/styles/dash style (it seems to vary depending on what function your looking but these seem to all be the same thing), I was wondering if there is a way to define a line type that uses World Units instead of page units. To this end are there actually two different types of 'line type' objects? When I imported any of the various ISO line types, I get a very different dialog as opposed to creating a new line type resource in the resource browser. Any one have thoughts on this? I'm almost wondering if I've stumbled across an incomplete area of the API... Cheers, -gonda
Hey All, So, can anyone explain or point me somewhere that explains how Line Types currently work? As far as I can tell, line types are defined in page inches. How does this relate to document Units, Layer Scale, etc. Also, is there a way to have a line type that has a constant screen scale? i.e. The line type always shows up with the same level of of detail regardless of zoom level? It seems that this used to just work before they changed line type/style into resources. Cheers, -gonda
