      I have added a new linetype (Section Line) in the Userlines.dat.. i copied the supplied phantom linetype and changed the linetype values to a linetype that looks like a Section line the way i want it to look. When i re-enter the program (Section Line) does not show up… Any ideas why it’s not available? I have attached my userlines.dat file

      below are the last dozen or so rows of my userlines.dat since the forum won’t let me upload the file.

      You need to remove the pound sign ( # ) at the start of your custom lines. The pound sign tells TPC to ignore that line in the file. More information is available in the SyntaxLines.txt file that is available by clicking the Syntax Definition button next to the Line Types button of the Drawing View tab in Program Settings.
