ProgeSOFT IntelliCAD – Setting the current linetype

You normally draw an entity using the linetype assigned to the current layer, indicated as BYLAYER.
You can also assign linetypes on a per-entity basis, which overrides the layer’s linetype setting.
A third option is to assign the BYBLOCK linetype, whereby you draw new entities using the default linetype until you group them into a block.
The entities inherit the current linetype setting when you insert the block into the drawing.

To make the linetype current

1 Do one of the following:
  • Choose Settings > Explore Linetypes.
  • On the Settings toolbar, click the Explore Linetypes tool.
  • Type expltypes and then press Enter.
2 In the Linetype Name list, select the linetype you want to
   make current.
3 Do one of the following:
  • Choose Edit > Current.
  • Select it in the Linetype Name list and click the Current
     tool.
  • Double-click the linetype name.
4 To complete the command and return to your drawing,
   close the window.
