Line Styles


Recommended Posts

I have to fix this!!

Happened to 2 people in the office.

We have templates with specific line styles.

Somehow some files got line styles in the obj properties palette changed to

very dense ones, with dashes very close to each other.Nobody knows how it happened and it takes forever to fix them manually in the edit line styles menu (terrible to use, imprecise, hard to grab handles etc.)

Even copying and pasting or importing the correct ones from other files won't work, as they become replaced by those in the obj. properties list.

Just when I thought I could fix everything in VW!!

I remember in the past you could replace the Data folder in VW to get the standards back. What now?

Please help!

I think I got the solution. Problem arises when importing Autocad DWG (ah,that program...)

VW imports AC linestyles ( or sort of) and replaces the document default.

Solution: export a new VW drawing (with the line styles you use) with anything, even just a square

as DWG. Import it in the problematic drawing, and the default linestyles will come back.
