1. Set LTSCALE, PSLTSCALE, MSLTSCALE & CELTSCALE all to 1
2. In paperspace, draw examples of the standard linetypes that came with AutoCAD (for example, hidden, hidden2 and hiddenX2)
3. Test-print the linetypes at 1:1 scale in paperspace, compare them, and select the ones that you wish to use.
4. In modelspace, set CANNOSCALE to 1/4" = 1'-0". It is found on a list on the taskbar, next to an icon of the end of a drafting scale. The default scale is usually 1:1. Pick 1/4" = 1'-0" from the list.
5. Now select your hidden linetype and start drawing a sample.
6. Switch back to the paperspace tab and create a viewport. Double-click inside it and zoom in to your example. Then double-click outside the viewport to return to paperspace. Click on the viewport to highlight it, and change its scale to 1/4" = 1'-0". You should see the dashed line in the sample, similar to how it shows in modelspace.
Others have different set up, but I typically set the following to 1
You can also look at your annotation visibility icons at the bottom of your screen
I changed them back to 1 and it showed up in p.s. good on the longer lines, but the short ones were still solid, so I changed it to .5 and it worked great.
