AutoCAD linetype and AutoCAD linetype scale, how to gain standard linetype settings for drawings at different scales?
Any ways to reach linetypes and linetype scales!In my office they seem to be a general problem,ie, not printing correctly, printing to big/small.

Linetype setting is as below,
if you have one (or multiple) viewport with the same scale:
set your PSLTSCALE = 0
set your LTSCALE to the viewport scale
ie 1" = 50' LTSCALE = 50
1/2" = 1'-0" LTSCALE = 24 (2 x 12 = 24)
1/4" = 1'-0" LTSCALE = 48 (4 x 12 = 4
etc...
