    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?

  2. 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.
