Create Breaks

May 20, 2011

       You can break arcs, circles, ellipses, lines, polylines, rays, and infinite lines. When breaking entities, you must specify two points for the break. By default, the point you use to select the entity becomes the first break point; however, you can use the First break point option to select a break point different from the one that selects the entity.
