Renaming Linetypes

You may want to rename a linetype to better identify how it’s used. You can rename a linetype at any time during the drawing session.
When you rename a linetype, you rename only the linetype definition in your drawing. The name in the LIN library file is not updated to reflect the new name.
NOTE You cannot rename linetypes BYLAYER, BYBLOCK, or CONTINUOUS or xref-dependent linetypes.
Linetypes can be sorted by name and description. When linetypes are sorted, BYLAYER and BYBLOCK always appear at the top of the list. Linetype names can be sorted in ascending or descending alphabetical order.

To rename a linetype

  1. From the Format menu, choose Linetype.
  2. In the Linetype Manager, select a linetype to rename, select the name, and then enter a new name.
  3. Choose OK.
