An additional note: make sure that the directory that stores your new, modified acad.pat file is above the directory that contains the AutoCad default acad.pat file directory. For simplicity, Add... your new file directory location to the Support File Search Path then click the Move Up button until that directory is at the top, just under the text Support File Search Path.
There is no need to restart AutoCAD after doing this.
