You can use the same
linetype at different scales by changing the linetype scale factor
either globally or individually for each object.
default, both global and individual linetype scales are set to 1.0.
The smaller the scale, the more repetitions of the pattern are generated
per drawing unit. For example, with a setting of 0.5, two repetitions
of the pattern in the linetype definition are displayed for each
drawing unit. Short line segments that cannot display one full linetype
pattern are displayed as continuous. You can use a smaller linetype
scale for lines that are too short to display even one dash sequence.
Linetype Manager displays the Global Scale Factor and Current Object Scale.
Global Scale Factor value controls the LTSCALE system variable, which
changes the linetype scale globally for both new and existing objects.
- The Current Object Scale value controls
the CELTSCALE system variable, which
sets the linetype scale for new objects.
The CELTSCALE value is multiplied by the LTSCALE
value to get the displayed linetype scale. You can easily change
linetype scales in your drawing either individually or globally.
In a layout, you can adjust the scaling of linetypes
in different viewports with PSLTSCALE.
