Textual complex linetypes on the fly

A very useful utility appeared today on CAD Forum. The LTFly tool creates linetypes (dashed lines with texts) as you go.

Imagine you need to create a series of lines labeled "LINE1" to "LINE9" or pipe lines labeled "D30" to "D300". You can label the lines separetely with masked texts or you can create manually the encoded .LIN files with linetype definitions and load the text linetypes in your drawing. With LTFly I was able to just type the text and the linetypes were created automatically. This can be a real time saver in some situations.
