Different line types

Post by bobdeutsch » Fri Sep 13, 2019 10:48 pm

Is it possible to draw another type of line other then just a solid line, ie, dotted lines? Can't seem to find anything that allows it.

Sure - that is usually done with layer attributes. Here is how it works:

Drawing new entities is done with Color, Lineweight and Linetype default 'By Layer'.
Drawing on layers as with the tutorial these new entities immediately are displayed with the layer prefs.
But it is not limited to that.
You can set any specifics as you prefer after drawing them.

In a new metric drawing Layer0 is set by default Black // 0.25 (ISO) // Continuous.
Draw a new entity and select it.
Now you can set it to Red ....
The entities general Properties are in the Property Editor.
The layer props can be preset or reset in the Layer List.
