Assigning Linetypes

Assigning a linetype to an object is a straightforward process, and can be accomplished by one of two methods. You can assign linetypes globally, through AutoCAD’s Layer Properties Manager, or you can assign linetypes individually, from the Object Properties toolbar. Both methods are easy to use, and accomplish the same thing: assigning a new linetype to an object.

However, although both methods accomplish the same thing, one method definitely has an advantage over the other. By applying a linetype to a layer in the Layer Properties Manager dialog box, you control the appearance of all objects on that layer. This means you can instantly reapply a new linetype to hundreds of objects with a few simple clicks of your pointing device and change the linetype setting for a given layer.
