Thanks to those who commented on the Contour line issue. I have a new question for the AutoGuru's among us. This may be minor but it has grown increasingly annoying.
I have a created a dimension style that uses a flashy architectural style arrowhead I created. I created the arrowhead as a block. I can draw a leader line and print any detail and the arrowhead magically appears, no problem. I can even insert the detail as a block into any drawing and still the arrowhead magically appears, no problem.
But when I exref the detail into a new drawing from scratch or a new drawing started with my template the arrowheads revert back to the Autocad default (closed filled type of arrowhead). If I take the same file I have exreffed into and insert the detail as a block the cool flashy arrowhead comes in no problem. As near as I can tell, it only happens during exreferencing.
From what I can tell, when you exref in a detail, Acad turns off the "dimsah" variable. So I go ahead and turn it on. Then I go and set the "dimblk" variable to my flashy arrowhead. And when I do, it tells me the "block has not been defined, invalid". So I insert the arrowhead block right next to the exrefed detail and setup the dim style in that drawing to use the flashy arrowhead. I can now draw a leader and the flashy arrowhead appears. But when I xref in another dwg right next to the previous xref, I get the same result, it reverts back to Acad's default arrowhead. But when you draw a leader, as I said previously, you get the flashy arrowhead.
The good news is that I am getting arrowheads on all my plots. But it is just bugging the #%&$! out of me.
This happens on R14 and LT2000. HELP!
