how to get hidden lines on drawing to match those in the plot

Drafting Gurus,

Does anyone know how to get the spacing of the hidden lines in a plotted
drawing to match those you see on the screen?


what you see on screen what you see on plot

Thanks to Andrew, Carol, Dave and Kelly for each having another take and
another piece of the puzzle on the hidden line question. I've seen us all
having a hidden line display issues since migrating to Pro/E many years
ago.

My final solution in this particular instance was to change the hidden
line font to one I'd never noticed before, 'PDFHIDDEN_LINES.' Maybe why I
like it as my solution is that part of my paradigm is to create a PDF
files of documents I've created. I do not know if this line font is
included with Pro/E or if it is a custom created line font.

Worthy of mention is a method to see on your screen what will be sent to
the plotter. You go thru a routine where you send a print to a printer
named 'screen,' it wasn't the solution I was looking for but proved a
useful time and paper saving tool. A reasonable person might think it
would be the default... having what you saw on your screen match what came
out of the plotter.
