USA Linetypes

Rather than load linetypes from a file, if we want to draw a line with a different pattern [dots, dashed etc.], we find it much easier to insert a block containing a set of lines with our favorite linetypes already associated with them.

The image below shows a drawing in which a block containing lines associated with 7 different linetypes has been inserted. Once that is done, the block can be deleted but the linetypes are still available for use. If at any time, a line in the drawing needs a particular linetype pattern, it is just a matter of selecting the particular patten via the properties dialog for that entity.

Movie Here is a link to a YouTube movie shows how that is done.
