    Once you understand how linetype definitions work simply adding needed linetypes so you can leave all the linetype scales at 1 will make your life easier. To edit acadiso.lin enter "start" at the command line, then "acadiso.lin". Do not enter the "".

    For a simple linetype the second line is called the linetype pattern and simply moving the decimal point one place for each number will scale the linetype by 10.

    Like tombu we have some linetypes that are just the same pattern but at different spacing, just copied the original, gave new name and halved the values. ELEC & ELEC2. Allows us to have a "E" on long and short lines.
