    Just create your own then you won't have to worry about catching a virus.

    Thanks ReMark, I suppose that is the best approach and I will have to look into doing that.

    What kinds of linetypes were you looking for anyway?

    You can try this website. It has several linetype files you can download.

    Another website with links to different collections of linetypes.

    Just some fairly standard ones like "fenceline ----x----x----", ---gas---gas---, etc.

    Hi ReMark - I have done some linetype file downloading and was hoping that you could give me instruction on how to insert them into my AutoCAD 2008 program.

    Thanks,

    Dave

    You have to add line description (code) to your acad.lin (or acadiso.lin) file using Notepad.

    Check these threads:
    LT is still AutoCAD

    I would recommend that you do not add the new linetypes to your acad.lin file. I would create a folder called MyLinetypes and put the .LIN file(s) in it and make sure the path to the folder is added via Options > Files > Support File Search Path.
