Explore Linetypes

Toolbar: Settings > Explore Linetypes ()

Menu: Settings > Explore Linetypes



Experience Level: Intermediate

Displays the progeCAD Explorer with the Linetype Name list displayed. You can view, create, copy, or edit linetypes in the progeCAD Explorer.

A linetype consists of a repeating pattern of dots, dashes, or blank spaces. You can use different linetypes to represent specific kinds of information. For example, if you are drawing a site plan, you can draw roads using a continuous linetype or property lines using a border linetype consisting of dashes and dots.

By default, every drawing has at least three linetypes: CONTINUOUS, BYLAYER, and BYBLOCK. You cannot rename or delete these linetypes. Your drawing may also contain an unlimited number of additional linetypes. You can load more linetypes into the program from a linetype library file or create and save linetypes you define.

To load a new linetype into a drawing, click the New Item tool, and in the New Linetype dialog box, create a new linetype or choose a new linetype file.

You can edit a linetype by right-clicking on the linetype name and selecting Properties from the shortcut menu. In the Linetype Description field, you can type a phrase describing the linetype or you can type a series of dashes, spaces, and dots that represent how the linetype will appear. In the Linetype Definition field, you can define the linetype using positive and negative numbers and zeros. A positive number draws a solid line segment for the specified number of drawing units. A negative number creates a gap for the specified number of drawing units. A zero creates a dot.
