I have a stupid question
in Acad 2010 what is the command or where is the button to measure the length of a polyline. I am trying to layout a radiant heat loop in a concrete floor and need to keep them all the same length.
You can use the LIST command. BTW, the only dumb questions are the ones that people never ask. What matters is learning. Warm regards from Los Angeles,
Here's a copy of the command history:
Select objects: 1 found
LWPOLYLINE Layer: "0"
Space: Model space
Handle = 2b3e
Constant width 0'-0"
area 1151125.71 square in. (7993.9286 square ft.)
length 413'-3 27/32"
As noted by caddguru, the LIST command will give you information about an object, including the total length of a polyline. You can also obtain the value for a selected polyline from the Length property in the Properties palette.
The Length property can be added to the list of properties displayed for polylines by Rollover Tooltips and/or Quick Properties, if you are able to edit your main CUIX file, by using the CUI command.
