K.M is doing a plat that has an electrical line type that has an “E” in the line. He was hoping to get the “E” to repeat more often and make the text larger so that it can be seen when plotted. How can we do this?
C:\Documents and Settings\
- Vista or Win7 users will find this: C:\Users\
- For Civil 3D 2011 the path will be ...blah\blah\blah\Autodesk\C3D 2011\enu\Support (substitute appropriate Windows AppData path instead of the blahs.)
Double-click the ACAD.lin file and open it up with notepad.
You’ll see the list of all the “guts” of the linetypes.
Scroll down to the bottom to see a category called user defined linetypes.
You’ll end up pasting something like this at the bottom of the file.

It is about damn time I posted. I have been all over the US vacationing, learning VB.NET and teaching Civil 3D.
The following post was inspired by a customer of mine who does a lot of work for South Dakota DOT. He wanted to label the station inside the graph, but the grid lines were harshing his buzz. There is no way (to my knowledge) to force the display order of this item.
Happy 4th! Don't blow off any appendages.
