With LINE, you can create a series of contiguous line segments.

Each single line segment can be edited separately from the other line segments in a series. You can close a sequence of line segments so that the first and last segments are joined.

To draw lines

  • From the Draw menu, choose Line.
  • Specify the start point.
  • You can use the pointing device or enter a coordinate on the command line.

  • Complete the first line segment by specifying the endpoint.
  • To undo the previous line segment during the LINE command, enter u or choose Undo on the toolbar.

  • Specify the endpoints of any additional line segments.
  • Press ENTER to end or c to close a series of line segments.
  • To start a new line at the endpoint of the last line drawn, start the LINE command again and press ENTER at the Specify Start Point prompt.
