AutoCAD Tutorial: Linetype Scales and Fixing Linetype Display Issues

Brandon here, back with another new AutoCAD Tutorial video.
In this video I go over a couple quick fixes to a common issue I’ve been asked out, Linetypes not showing up or at a weird scale.

Line types can be a bit of a learning process with new CAD users and can turn into a huge frustration point when you can’t seem to figure out why they aren’t showing up properly for you. Sometimes it’s as simple as a line type scale being set wrong for your drawing (LTS command) or it can be a mismatch between model space and paper space lint type scales which can usually be taken care of with either MSLTSCALE or PSLTSCALE commands. If neither of these variables fix your line types then take a look at todays tutorial video where I show a couple other options to fix your line type display issues:

As always, thank you so much for watching, and don’t forget to let me know what tip, trick or tutorial you’d like to see next in the comments or if you’re having issues with your line types.
Cheers and happy drafting!
