When are we going to get line types with letters? So as to be able to do polylines.
Thanks Dave

The next version of the CAD Engine we use will support special linetypes such as those shown below:

*FENCELINE, Fenceline ----0-----0----0-----0----0-----0--
A,0.625,-0.25,[CIRCLE,ltypeshp.shx,x=-0.25,s=0.25],-0.25,0.25

*BATTING,Batting SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
A,.00025,-0.25,[BAT,ltypeshp.shx,x=-0.25,s=0.25],-0.5,[BAT,ltypeshp.shx,r=180,x=0.25,s=0.25],-0.25

*ZIGZAG,ZigZag /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/
A,.00025,-0.50,[ZIG,ltypeshp.shx,x=-0.50,s=0.50],-1.0,[ZIG,ltypeshp.shx,r=180,x=0.5,s=0.5],-0.5

This will be incorporated into the next full version of MSCAD - coming soon.
