Summary0001921: Drawing view hidden lines and stroke-dasharray

It looks like ATM this is controlled by hard coded value of stroke-dasharray="0.02,0.1" and that is why this does not scale all that good:


P.S. If this gets fixed i was wondering if now would be appropriate time to get Drawing WB preferences page with hidden line stroke-dasharray settings in it. It's not much but after all DW has improved a lot in past few months and there is dimensioning extension available... Now might be the good time to break the ice and introduce rudimentary DW preferences page!
TagsNo tags attached.

There are actually 3 hardcoded values:

Hidden lines (probably vertical or horizontal) + smooth hidden lines on drawing page can have 3 variations. From technical drawing point of view all 3 hidden line types should have the same dashed line and as suggested drawing view scale above/below 1 should not scale them.

Indeed stroke-width does get calculated and inserted based on drawing view scale:

If this feature request is implemented Drawing WB will get the ability to set correct hidden line linetype. That is something currently not possible and post-procesing has to be used instead.
