How come there isn't a pneumatic linetype? This is one of the most commonly used linetypes in controls and instrumentation engineering drawings!!! Someone please tell me why? And how can I obtain it without manually doing it myself?

If you have Express Tools, it is relatively simple to MKSHAPE and MKLTYPE

Try this. Place in your acad.lin file.. or make up a new
.lin file called pneumatic.lin.

*PNEUMATIC,Pneumatic Lines
A,.25,-.12,.25,-.12,.25,-.12,["//",STANDARD,S=.20,R=0.0,X=-0.1,Y=-.10],-.25

Watch for line wrap.

Rather than relying on text, use the "slash" shape in the shape file that comes with AutoCAD. Fewer problems, especially given some peoples prediliction to using text style Standard.

A,.75,-.25,["//",STANDARD,S=.20,R=0.0,X=-0.1,Y=-.10],-.25

[TRACK1,ltypeshp.shx,S=___,R=-45,X=0,Y=0]

Adjust scale and position to fit.

I tried that one.
Had to change to:
*PNEUMATIC3,Pneumatic Lines
A,.75,-.25,[TRACK1,ltypeshp.shx,S=.25,R=-45,X=0,Y=0],-.25
..
and, that only gives me just (1) slash..

Did you check it ?
