Total length of all lines or polylines

I wonder if it´s possible in AutoCAD LT 2010 in some way get the
total length of the lines or polylines in a drawing?
I know about to measure the distance of many lines
with "multiple points" but that´s not enough.
Also if you have a closed polyline with many segments
you can under "properties" for that polyline get the total length.

I draw pipes and want sometimes to know the total lengt of them,
then the methods above are not enough for me.

Thanks

This function is part of the LT Extension add-on - the total length and the
table of lengths grouped by layer.

See:

Thanks for the help.
I also wonder how I do to get the total length of the lines
in a layer selected with the "filter" command.

Thanks/IL

No, this macro requires picking the individual points/entities, while LT
Extension processes the whole drawing or all selected objects automatically.

This is very similar to what im trying to do, but i thought it was (and probably still is) not possible.

Is there anywhere I can Demo LT Extension to see if I can make use of it? I tried the website but only seems to be a buy option.

Thanks

Unfortunately there is no trial version. You can see a flash demo on the LT
Extension web site or you can send a sample DWG file to support@xanadu.cz
and we will send back the results.
