Lines

May 20, 2011

A line consists of two points: a start point and an endpoint. You can connect a series of lines, but each line segment is considered a separate line object.

To draw a line

  1.    Choose Draw > Line.

  2.    Specify the start point.

  3.    Complete the first line segment by specifying the endpoint. To undo the previous line segment during the Line command, enter u and then press ENTER. Specify the endpoints of any additional line segments.

  4.    Press Enter to complete the command.

To start a new line at the endpoint of the last line drawn, start the Line command again and press Enter at the Specified Start Point prompt.
