In AutoCAD 2004, I draw 1:1 in modelspace, working with land parcels
that can be 10 miles wide and 10 miles long, if not larger.
At times I need to annotate my drawing with different types of lines to
represent existing infrastructure and proposed infrastructure. I need
for my proposed infrastructure to be represented as a dashed line.
When it comes to plotting my "maps", I need to plot them anywhere from
a 1"=1 mile scale to 4"=1 mile scale, on everything from from 11 X 17
tabloid paper up to 42" wide plotter paper.
In paperspace, I can make my lines dashed in any format that I choose,
but if I draw them in model space, I can't get the dashes to show up
correctly, if at all, once I get ready to plot.
I can draw my dashed lines in paper space on each layout, but if I
adjust the drawing while in "model space", obviously, I lose the
placement of my dashed lines that were drawn on the "paper", and not in
I've gone to linetype manager and my global scale factor is 1, current
object scale is 1, and the "use paper space units for scaling" checkbox
What am I missing. I know it must be simple, I just can't figure it
