Complex Linetypes

I have created a complex linetype using a arc.shx and it works great except
at the ends and every node it is a straight line for approx 3mm. It will not
scale to fit the shape to the line. Is there any way to correct this?

Hi Glenn,

As far as I can see the solution to this requires a rewrite of the AutoCAD
linetype engine. I heard a very strong rumour that they are addressing this
from the viewpoint of line display in 3D. Maybe they will go further and
fix it entirely and we will see the long awaited demise of the arcane
"penup-pendown" line type definition process.
