Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Polyline editing, part of AutoCAD for Mac 2015 Essential Training.
- We have already created poly lines using tools like…Rectangle and Polygon as well as the Poly Line tool itself.…But now we should take a look at the poly lines themselves…so we better understand how to modify them.…I'm gonna select the rectangle here…and we can see it's one object made up of four line segments…that share end points.…We can select these end point grips…and stretch the rectangle…and while we're left with a single poly line…we're no longer left with a rectangle.…I'm gonna go to Edit and Undo…and this time I'm gonna select on the mid-point grips here.…
Now we can see that I can retain…the parallel aspect of the shape…and if I hold down the shift key, I can lock myself…into Ortho mode and even keep this as a rectangle.…I'll select this poly line here that was…created with the Poly Line tool itself.…Again, I can modify the grips as I like…even modifying the mid-point of my arch here…to change the radius.…But what if we want to do something a bit more substantial…like modifying the width of the entire poly line?…
