custom line type

Recommended Posts


I created a custom line type to represent my wire but when I use it doesn't show the wire going all the way to my devices. As you can see the line doesn't extend to where the line starts or ends. I cant figure this out.

You could have provided more information. Your linetype appears to be a complex one, which contains a shape. However you have not posted that shape file, nor have you posted the linetype definition file.


So I will guess.


It appears that your linetype starts and finishes with a dot. With A-type alignment, AutoCAD varies the length of the first and last dash length to suit. However a dot has no length, so I suspect that AutoCAD is varying the length of the space between the dot and the first dash.


AutoCAD is drawing your linetype correctly.
