Dashed Lines Not Showing UP

Nick Darin Architect

I am making a basic drawing and I am trying to use dashed lines. I have the linetype set to one of my dashed types and the lines are not showing up dashed. There are no graphic overrides or renovation filters set and I have changed the scale of the drawings to see if that was the issue, but no luck. Any thoughts? Thank you!

The line is called "Dashed - Dense", so I am guessing the dashes are very close together.

Zoom in on that line and you will probably see them.

Maybe switch to a less dense line type, or adjust the size of the gaps in that line type settings.
