I am a new user to the 2009 version of autoCAD lt and can not figure out how to draw a curved line. I am drawing a curved sofa, so the line is a soft curve. I have tried arc, but the line is too curved.

Your arc could be any radius from .1x10-20 to infinity, and beyond!
SPLINE for multiple unsmooth curves.
Set points for the ARC to grab to and then erase the points.
Use multiple ARCs to create several curves.
ARC command is nothing more than a portion of a circle. All the qualities of a circle are present you just need to decide what portion of it you want. The attached line is an arc.

If your curve is a segment of a circle, you could use 3P circle command and then trim the portion not needed. If the curve is more of an ellipse you could use that command and trim the portion not needed.
