In the INI file (tcw22_xml.ini) found at "C:\Users\your user name\AppData\Roaming\IMSIDesign\TurboCAD 2015\Professional x64\Profiles\Built-In". This location is normally "hidden". The contents of the INI file can be viewed in the "TurboCAD Explorer palette. Go to "Settings / Built-In(Current) / LineStyle_Table" to view the default styles and any custom styles that you may have added.

There is also the "Shapes" folder (same directory as the "Drawings" folder) that contains SHX files that can be used in a Line style.

I've never added custom line styles to the Defaults, but keep them as a Symbol in the "My Symbols folder. I can drag-n-drop a saved line style from the Library into any drawing. Only the styles I insert are saved with the drawing.

Thank you much, John. This is one of those days when I wasn't careful enough and actually learned something.
