Problem Adding New Instrument Linetype

359 Views, 3 Replies

I am trying to create additional instrument linetypes in AutoCAD P&ID 2012 and I have run into a problem. I cannot get the new linetypes to display correctly on the tool pallette. They all appear as a continuous line. If I hover the cursor over the symbol I can tell which line is which. How do I change the symbol on the pallette?

You have to do it manually. First, get a snapshot of the linetype, either pngout or any other method. Then edit the "atc" file and include the image into the file.
