    In your drawing you must load HIDDEN linetype (normally only Continuous and Dalayer are loaded)
    For load: at prompt command write LINETYPE and load from ACAD.LIN type line HIDDEN (or load from toolbar linetype) or load from toolbar standard > Linetype
    After draw circle, select circle with mouse and press right button > from pop menu select Property (or press Property from toolbar), set HIDDEN in Linetype property and change Scale property factor for increase or decrease dash lenght

    For tutorial how load HIDDEN line see:
