#1

Hi @dan
thanks for the fresh update.

small cosmetic thing, i noticed that the line type examples for dashed looks the same as continuous
border and center.
is this intentional?


Linetype Preview Issue in Layers Manager

Kinda…? :blush:

Well, actually, Continuous is longer than Border and Center, but I know what you mean. I think what is going on here is that the scales of the line examples in the layer dialog are too large to see an appreciable difference between those four types. I think you will see what I mean if you tweak the Linetypes in File > Settings > Linetypes.

@marlin do you think we can scale these preview linetypes in a way that could work across arbitrary linetypes? It seems like it could be a difficult problem to solve well.

Another workaround might be to just make the preview popover a bit wider.

This will be fixed in the next WIP release.

In the latest RhinoWIP (5E75w), the linetype examples in the layer manager should be better. Thanks again for reporting this!
