To Scale Linetypes in Layout Viewports

You can scale linetypes in paper space either based on the drawing units of the space
in which the object was created or based on the paper space units.

  • You can set the PSLTSCALE system variable to maintain the same linetype scaling for
    objects displayed at different zoom factors in the layout (paper space) and in the
    layout viewport (model space). For example:
  1. With PSLTSCALE set to 1 (default), set the current linetype to dashed, and then draw
    a line in a paper space layout.
  2. In the layout, create a viewport with a zoom factor of 1x, make that layout viewport
    current, and then draw a line using the same dashed linetype. The dashed lines should
    appear to be the same.
  3. If you change the viewport zoom factor to 2x, the linetype scaling for the dashed
    line in the layout and the dashed line in the layout viewport will be the same, regardless
    of the difference in the zoom factor.
  • With PSLTSCALE turned on, you can still control the dash lengths with LTSCALE and
    CELTSCALE. In the following illustration, the pattern of the linetypes in the drawing
    on the left has been scaled to be the same regardless of the scale of the view. In
    the drawing on the right, the scale of the linetypes matches the scale of each view.
