Line Scaling

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to understand line scaling in Chief, and could swear someone once said there was a feature that let Chief scale widths of the lines when going to Layout so that it was relational to the scale/size print.  I've searched for what this might be, but since I dont know what the correct term is I can't seem to find it. 

 

Then again, I may have altogether misunderstood - so I am not sure if what I read meant what I thought.  Any help on this is appreciated.

Away from  my computer so I may not get the exact specifics right but when you send a view to layout you should have the option to "Use Layout Line Scaling".   At least for plan views I don't believe you can change this after-the-fact. It has to be set when first sending to layout...if memory serves me correctly anywho.

 

EDIT:  One more detail...Check the box if you want the same printed line width at any scale.  Uncheck the box if you want the line widths to change proportionally based on your scale.
