I need to find lines that overlap one another in a drawing and mark them, not delete them.  I am running AutpCAD Map 3D 2012.

Thanks,

~Sue

Hi Sue,

 

Thank you for posting to the Autodesk Discussion Groups.

 

I would like to help you, but unfortunately, I do not understand your request.

Can you please reply with a detailed problem description that includes a set of steps to reproduce? Screenshots might help too.

 

Thanks!

Phil

your option if the lines are drawing objects

 

cleanup tools - find duplicates

 

if the line are on different layers .  qselect a layer to highlight the line on that layer

 

shift select and delete one line copy and delete to see the line underneath, cntrl z to replace it.

 

if the lines are FDO objects open the data table and select each line in the table

 

post the types of line and details for a better answer

Dear Phil, there's nothing to understand: she simply wanna highlight the ovelapping lines, without deleting them.


Here's my workaround, Sue:

  1. type in _MAPCLEAN
  2. set up like this
  3. in the next window, click on "retain.." and not on the default "modify.." like this
  4. after "Finish", you can isolate the layer SMVEST containing a copy of your overlaps
