Customising linetype

Hello. I created a linetype using text shape. Let’s say, that my line is only AAAAAA. Now when I apply this linetype in the drawing, the lines always have a small, line before and after the characters. Actually you see this:  -AAAA- . How can I delete or hide the start and end lines. Thank you.

as far as i know you can not cause that's the way autocad defines it's linetypes

The alignment field 'A' specifies the action for pattern alignment at the ends of individual lines, circles, and arcs. Currently, AutoCAD supports only A-type alignment, which guarantees that the endpoints of lines and arcs start and stop with a dash.
