Paint Properties, copy linetype scales

Post by Draffy Duck » Sat Jan 25, 2020 9:45 pm

I regularly adjust linetype scales on hidden, centreline and phantom lines to achieve the best appearance on the drawing when printed. I note the Paint Properties feature copies all the attributes of the chosen line but does not copy the scale. I have to change the scale of each line, even after 'painting'. This copying all Properties is something AutoCAD does. I know I could change the line to Hidden2 etc. and tick the 'scale lines' box in Drawing Properties but that is not always successful- copying properties is a quick and useful way of achieving the required result. Could that tweak be incorporated into a future update. Thanks.
