In this lesson, we'll learn how to create complex linetypes that include symbols. On my layout, I've created some geometry that represents a custom linetype. Let me mentioned that I've drawn this geometry at the same size that I want the linetype to appear on the printed sheets. The first step in creating my linetype is to convert this arrow geometry into a shape.

I'll do that by selecting the Express Tools tab, I'll open the Tools panel, and I'll select Make Shape. I am going to save the shape file in the Exercise Files folder, inside the Chapter 8 directory.
