    Hi

    Please note I have *moved* this thread from the New Forum Users Forum to this one as I believe it would be better served here.

    Sure. Have you ever made one before?

    You might start by studying the syntax found in the customization guide [F1 key], then use the -LINETYPE command. This creates the linetype definition using the command line without leaving AutoCAD. Good if you know the syntax and only have to do one.

    If you have more than one to define, create a .LIN file using Notepad, or some other ASCII text editor.

    You could also use the MKLTYPE command (part of Express Tools)

    Complex linetypes can be a little tricky, especially if you are using shapes. Express Tools also includes a MKSHAPE command to help with this part. If you use text in a complex linetype, create a textstyle dedicated for this use, and set it's fixed text height to 0.

    Lastly, if you have a drawing that contains a linetype that you want to add to your collection, then pick up NEW-LIN.LSP and/or TO-LIN.LSP from http://www.turvill.com/t2/free_stuff/index.htm. These routines will create a LIN file from linetypes in any drawing.

    Have you tried the appload command?

    You may also want to look at this thread (Running Lisp).
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.
