Have you ever wondered how to set the Linestyle scale in MicroStation V8? There are multiple ways to do this:
To set the scale globally, use this key-in: ACTIVE LINESTYLESCALE (scale value).
To set the scale at the level:
You cannot see the Linestyle scale from a reference file. This is because the scale is different between the master file and the reference file. To fix this, use the ACTIVE LINESTYLESCALE key-in in both files.
If you use the key-in without placing a value at the end, the message center will show the current value. After finding the value for the reference file go back into the master file and change the active scale to match that of the reference file. Please note that the custom lines in the master file will also be affected by this change.
Go to the File>Models and then go to Model Properties. Change the "Line Style Scale" to "Annotation Scale". This allows the changing of the active annotation scale in the current model to change the linestyle scale of custom line styles.
