Hi,

I am trying to make the door plan swing line as dash line.The problem is when I use the VG to set the swing line as dash line, it works fine in the view(1:20).But when I load the family into project, do the same thing in VG, the dash line only show under 1:1 scale, it suppose to be right under 1:100 (See attachment)

My question:

1. Is there any way can change the dash line in family(I know VG only works in current view), and keep the dash line right when load into project?

2.How to make the dash line scale right when I just want change it in project?

Lines look always as you set them up in Line Styles on sheet.They dont scale. They just look always the same for example:

1mm space, 1 dot, 1mm space, 1 dot etc

And no matter what scale you're in, it always stays the same. Dont get confused by your monitor view ...

If this is not happenening when you change family, than check your "Line Styles" in project. Or try the family in brand new project

Then is there anyway can change the line style for the whole family rather than just change instance in project?

Press left ALT than N than PS

Here you have Line Styles, you can add new or Edit, Family has styles and they are imported when you load the family, so you can change them in project and all lines in project will be affected even if they're in families.

So there is no instance of line, they are all from "Line styles", if you want some other line type you have to add it into Line Styles ...

Also look under this ... here you have topics related and you'll find your answers faster.

 

I edited post above to make more sense
