Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Editing polylines, part of Up and Running with AutoCAD for Mac.
…Now that we've created a number of…polylines in different ways, let's see what the…geometry of these shapes really involves and…how they are different than normal line segments.…Let's select the rectangle we created here, and we can see it…is one object made up of four line segments that share endpoints.…We can select these endpoint groups and stretch the rectangle but while…we still have the polyline, it is no longer a proper rectangle.…However, if we select…the midpoint grips here, we can effectively…stretch the rectangle while maintaining the parallel aspects.…
Now, let's take a look at the…larger polyline we created with the polyline tool.…Again, we can modify any of the grips,…including altering the endpoints and midpoints of the arcs.…But what if we want to do something more substantial?…Like modifying the width of the entire polyline, or even adding more vertices.…For that we'll use the p…edit tool.…I can access it either by right clicking on…the polyline and selecting edit, or if you don't…have right click editing enabled, I can go to…
