Converting the lines to polylines
I’m wondering if there is a command that can convert many lines to polylines at a time so that a “ Golbal width” can be given to them.
Why the “Match properties” command doesn’t convert lines to polyline when matching a polyline to a line?
Why there is no option in the “Properties” Pan to do that?
Thank you in advance,
Solved! Go to Solution.
Command _PEDIT (>>>details<<<) can do that.
Check also at the beginning of the command the option for selecting/converting multiple objects + the PEDIT-option "JOIN" to conact lines/arcs/polylines that have endpoints fitting together.

Many thanks Alfred.
the "Pedit" command is time consuming! many clicks for one single issue!
why this command doesn't start with "Multiple"?
it reminds me when the "copy" command was defualted to be single not multiple!

That was the reason why I mentioned in my previous post:
>> Check also at the beginning of the command the option for selecting/converting multiple objects
Check this command-line snapshot as sample for you, it does convert all what is convertable to Polyline (in the current space):
Command: _pedit Select polyline or [Multiple]: _multiple Select objects: _all 204 found 2 were not in current space. Select objects: Convert Lines, Arcs and Splines to polylines [Yes/No]? <Y> _yes ....

thank you alfred for your prompt answer.
A collleague sent me a command (attached) that can do this kind of work easily! l like it...it is exactly what i'm looking for. I'm wondering why it is not yet in the standard version of the AutoCAD.
I just added it to the 'Express" folder and then "load application".
what do you think?
>> why it is not yet in the standard version of the AutoCAD
Because the PEDIT command is already able to do the same thing as the LISP (from 1999) does. The LISP was written in a time where the PEDIT command have not had the "_MULIPLE" option on the beginning.
Nowadays all that can be done with _PEDIT itself. .... and if you need one button for it, you can create one, that's why AutoCAD is as successful as it is. If there is something missing, you have muliple options to get that into the package because of it's extremly flexibility.
Anyway if it's working for you, you have your problem solved
