Custom Linetype

I need to make a linetype to indicate handicap acess routes on a plan. The
symbol I need to use is a solid circle at spaced intervals. The solution up
until this point has been arraying a donut. I opened my big trap and
claimed I could build a linetype that would much easier. Now I'm not so
sure. Anyone know how this might be accomplished. I don't think you can
put blocks in linetypes and shapes don't lend themselves to donut thingies.
Maybe wingdings? How do you access those? Perhaps some lisp to automate
the donut array but that would not be changeable.

Any ideas on the best way to solve this problem.

If you have the express tools, there is a utility in there to make line
types, works real well.
If not, try some autocad web sites for line types. for instance

Yes, there are Wingding characters matching the inline symbol you
describe. See the topic 'Text Linetypes' in the 'Procedures' section of
http://www.dotsoft.com.

Good Luck, Terry

Thanks guys. Wingdings is the trick. I used the express tool also works
great.
