5.    Choose File О Save and save it in your AutoCAD Bible folder as ab31-2.lin.


6.    Choose Layers from the Object Properties toolbar. Choose Buried_cable and click its Continuous linetype in the Linetype column. In the Select Linetype dialog box, choose Load. Click File. Find ab31-2.lin in your AutoCAD Bible folder, choose it, and click Open.

Creating Hatch Patterns


Hatch patterns are sets of parallel line patterns that are used to fill an enclosed area. Although the part of the hatch pattern definition that defines each line has some similarities to a linetype definition, for hatch patterns you also need to specify the angle and spacing of the lines. You cannot include text or shapes in hatch patterns.
