TRIM and EXTEND issues

118 Views, 10 Replies

I'm having problems with both trim and extend stopping at "imaginary" lines on the dwg. I know to adjust the edge settings to "no extend", and I've also tinkered with the Projection settings. Nothing I set it to gets rid of the problem. Any other ideas?

Change your EDGEMODE variable.

I already tried setting it to 0, with no success.

Try

Command: UCS, use World

Command: Plan, use Current.

Then trim and extend

I looked but they were all already set to those settings.

For testing, if you have a polyline, explode it and see if you have a zero length line at the end of the polyline.

zero length will not stretch.

I don't catch your meaning. How is that related to TR and EX commands?

Trim and Extend change the LENGTH of a line (segment).  He's saying that if you have a polyline with a zero lenght segment, it will STAY zero length (will not change in length).  Since it won't change length, it will behave as you've described.
