Plotting dashed lines with SP7

Post by rwhatman » Wed Jul 07, 2004 4:24 pm

I have found a temporary fix for plotting dashed or any line type.

Put a width to the line say 0.001 and line will plot just fine.

I believe MicroSurvey is looking for a fix. I hope this helps.

Nice find Richard.

To clarify though, the width has to be assigned to a polyline. You can run the PEDIT command to transfor a line to a pline - then pick on Width and give it a value of 0.001. Then it seems to show in the print preview and print to paper correctly. It also shows up in the preview on our Project Manager.
