Xref dependant LinetypeTableRecord and its database

I would like to ask for help to solve my problem with LinetypeTableRecord from Xref within attached drawings but you would probably need MgdBbg or ArxDbg to read their properties to help me (I appreciate that).

In Master.dwg there are two LinetypeTableRecords from X_source.dwg Xref:

1) X_source |CENTER

2) X_source |DASHED

Despite both LinetypeTableRecords are Xref dependant,  one linetype is Database  ‘Master.dwg’ resident  and second is Database ‘X_source.dwg’ resident.

After some investigation I thing autocad variable VISRETAIN  controls in what database the Xref linetypes are stored.


So my question and goal is:  how can I change/moved LinetypeTableRecord ‘X_source |DASHED’ from database ‘X_source.dwg’ to database ‘Master.dwg’ and keep property  IsDependant=true.






Sorry for clumsy explanation, I hope someone will help me.
