Adding multiple polylines in feet and inches

Is there a way that I can add multiple polylines in feet and inches?

i down loaded some lisp routines, but they are not in feet and inches.

Thanks!

Other than using a program, 2 methods come to mind.

 

1) Copy the polylines end to end.  Join them. Read the length property.

 

2)For a permanent record, create a formula field that adds object fields for each polyline's length.  Format the field in architectural units.

 

3)If you already have a lisp that works, convert the value to the current units format by 

(rtos <length from lisp>)

Please try attached routine.

Set the drawing units to architectural before using it.
