Currently revit can only use a DASH <space> DOT format for creating new line patterns, this to me is too restrictive in terms of differentiating linetypes. Maybe something as simple as the option to use letters between DASHes could be a quick fix. I do believe more could be done maybe in the next issue to address this problem.

Agreed. Text in linetypes would be useful.

Agreed. There needs to be some way of more efficiently showing things like property lines, utility locations etc.

I agree with the prevous comments. It is important to be able to show all site services correctly on the site plan view, even to the extent of showing stormwater drainage from the house downpipes to the legal point of discharge for a site. It wuold make the drawings much clearer, if a "SW" text insert within a line style can be achieved. Same for other types of site services. If a line style can be created with text, then be editable by users to create other line styles for each type of service that is required - eg "GAS" "S" "AG" etc etc .
