Your first time making a linetype you should make a copy of your ACAD.LIN for safe keeping.


Open ACAD.LIN with Wordpad

Look for linetype GAS (for example)   Copy and paste it

Replace GAS to wtr


Restart autocad.

*WATER_LINE,Water Line ----WTR----WTR----WTR----WTR----WTR----WTR--

 Paste that into your ACAD.LIN file under User Defined Linetypes
