Attribute palette, line type preview


Hi All,

It's been a while since I was on these forums, and I've done a couple of searches to see if this is a common problem, so please forgive me if it's been discussed recently and just eluded me!


For the last few versions of VW, since the Attribute palette took on the form it now has, the line type previews are not at all helpful. Here's a screen shot of what I mean:

There are three versions of the line shown here, and the two "previews" in the palette are nothing like what is shown on the drawing. Basically, the palette is of no help in selecting a line type -I need to just pick one, exit, see what it looks like on the drawing, and repeat until by luck I find the one I need. (Yes, most lines are drawn by class so this is only done occasionally, but it still feels like a big potentially useful palette and its preview windows are completely wasted when I do need to choose a line type.)


Thanks for any help!

The Attributes Palette is in desperate need of an update, especially now that its dockable. You should be able to tell at a glance what things are set to and it should work in both horizontal and vertical formats. I wonder if @JimWcould move this thread to the Wishlist so we could upvote it.
