Mr. King,


I have not seen a linetype for ISA 5.1 section B.9.5 so far.


You would need to:


  1. Create a new drawing or open an existing drawing template
  2. Create a custom line type
  3. Save it to a .lin file
  4. Open ProjSymbolStyle.dwg in your project 
  5. Load the new linetype from the .lin file
  6. Save ProjSymbolStyle.dwg


This will add the new custom linetype into the project styles which will allow you to select it from inside Project Setup in the line settings.



Section 2 of the AutoCAD 2013 Customization Guide has some inforamation about custom line types:

Also, there is a great tutorial on this site:
