At last, real rectangles in AutoCAD

You have been waiting for real rectangles in AutoCAD for years.
The wait is over!
Here is how it works:
Draw a floating viewport in paper space.
Copy/paste it in Model space.
That's it!
You've got a real rectangle, you can change its length and heigth and its
center in the properties window, and you can change its size by grip

That's pretty cool, Patrick. Did your discovery begin with a mistake of some kind? (In the next version, they'll probably call it a new feature.)
After playing with it for a while, I've realized that you can specify whatever linetype you want, but these things are going to appear "continuous". Still, thanks for the tip.

Using an appropriate plot style you can get any line type (at the paper).

Even though it looks continuous on the screen?

Yes - try it. In the paperspace on the screen it looks continuous, in the plot preview and finally on the paper it looks like defined in the plot style.
