The button will take you directly to the LType Cmd section of the APS Configuration Utility that allows you to change the linetype files, and linetype choices.

--The objects in the drawing will be changed to the linetype selected--


Shortcut tip: If you have just performed another command on the objects that you want to change, you don't have to select the objects again.

Note: if the objects you select are a part of a block/xref and the linetype of the objects within the block have not been set to "Byblock" the linetype will not change.
