Working with the progeCAD Explorer - Working with linetypes

Loading additional linetypes

Before you can select a new linetype to use in a drawing, you must either create the linetype definition or load a predefined linetype from a linetype library file (*.lin). progeCAD includes a linetype library file, icad.lin, which contains more than 100 predefined linetypes.

  3. Type expltypes and then press Enter.
  4. Using one of the following methods, open the New Linetype dialog box:
