The linetype name can include up to 255 characters. Linetype names can contain letters, digits, and the special characters dollar sign ($), hyphen
(-), and underscore (_). Linetype names cannot include blank spaces.
In the Create or Append Linetype File dialog box, select an LIN linetype library file from the File Name box and choose Save.
If you select an existing file, the new linetype name is added to the linetype names in the file.
<LI class=list_1 value=5>Enter text that describes the new linetype (optional).
At the Enter Pattern prompt, specify the pattern of the line. Follow these guidelines:
All linetypes must begin with a dash.
<LI class=list_bullet>Enter zeros for dots. <LI class=list_bullet>Enter negative real numbers for spaces. The value defines the length of the space in drawing units. <LI class=list_bullet>Enter positive real numbers for dashes. The value defines the length of the dash in drawing units.
Separate each dot, dash, or space value from the next with a comma.
Use a space between a dot and a dash.
Press ENTER to end the command.
Note When you create a linetype, it is not loaded into your drawing automatically. Use the Load option of LINETYPE.
