Please notice that there are several types of dashed line types, also in different scales e. So be sure to use those to differentiate different dashed lines, instead of using a per object linetype scale. There is no set value for the global scale factor, so it might take some experimentation to find the correct value. Best way to see if it's exactly what you want, it's recommended to make a test plot. Introduction While working with AutoCAD, you'll often run into situations where you want to draw dashed lines.
Linetype Lets for instance say we want to make a dashed line out of the lines that form the 'x' shape in the drawing below. In the Layer Manager set the line type to the type you want Linetype column : You may have to use the Load button to load additional line types: Close the Layer manager and select the lines: After selecting the lines you can place them into the newly created layer by selecting that layer from the layer pull-down menu. Note: When you change the global scale factor, it may not update immediately in your drawing.

I think these Layer troubles could depend on many reasons: amount of RAM on your Mac, DWG file size, and most important — quantity of layers in your file.

Do you have such issues in files with just a few layers? I only have 10 or less layers in my drawing. The drawing file is a house floor plan, very small file KB. I am using the latest I know in previous versions of snow leopard you could.
I always have layer manager docked, so no I never tried to add layers with the manager undocked. Been trying the LMAN routine for a little while today.

Nice routine — very much appreciated. Question as to whether there is a limit to the number of saved layer states that will work under this routine. I use six typically, but can only get four to function. The bottom two do nothing.

I have tried this form several different angles, including opening a drawing that contains the layer states it recognizes all six ; I have re-saved the layer states; I have deleted and imported the layer states, but continue to have the same results. MacBook Pro, 2. I have tested LMAN with more than 6 layer states and it seems to work properly for me. Could you share your problem file? Let me know if it works with your file.
Thanks so much for this routine! Its great! Had a question, if I may impose. Great job! Thank you for appreciating my work!

Regarding to your questions — of course you can change the functionality of the program or rather a simplified version , but unfortunately I now do not have enough free time to do so. I can also publish successful results if any of your work here, on macacad. If you could send the lisp to jimlapier me.
Hi there, i just wanted to drop you a line to say that i thoroughly enjoyed this particular post of yours, I have subscribed to your RSS feeds and have skimmed a few of your posts before but this one really stood out for me. For the moment my routine allows you to perform basic operations with layer states: list layer states names saved in the drawing, save new layer states restore saved layer states delete existing layer states export layer state to. LAS file and import layer state from. How to use If you want to save specific layer state, you have first to setup layers via Layers Palette.
