Making a Linetype Current

You can assign a linetype to a layer, set the current linetype for new objects that you create (including BYLAYER or BYBLOCK), or change the linetype of existing objects in your drawing. All newly created objects are drawn using the current linetype (except for text and inserted blocks). You must choose a linetype and make it current if you want new objects (except text and inserted blocks) to be drawn with a new linetype.

NOTE Xref-dependent linetypes cannot be made current.

To make a linetype current for objects

  1. From the Format menu, choose Linetype.
  2. In the Linetype Manager, select a linetype and choose Current.
  3. Choose OK.
