Dude! I drew some simple highway outlines, but accidentally snapped some points to objects with non-zero Z coordinates...how can I flatten all my highway lines while maintaining all X and Y coordinates?? thanks!
IF you do not have an Express tool pulldown in AutoCAD, you need to wither
buy them from Autodesk at http://www.autodesk.com/estore or if you an
Autodesk annual subscriber you can get them for free from the signup website
info that you received from AutoDesk.

> where do I find these tools
Are there different versions of Express tools? It's just that I don't seem to have all the tools mentioned in this or other discussion groups. I can't seem to find the "Flatten" command or the command to convert Plt files to Dxf files that i have also seen mentioned in other dicussions.
Looking at the file I would suggest its not doing what you think.
All objects are at a z value of 0 so that isn’t it.
Type in viewres then Y then 20000
The drawing has viewres set to 200 which is not going to show the objects accurately.
Once setting viewres to 20000, If you zoom in & zoom in on the end of the line, eventually you can see the line & the arc don’t intersect, there’s a gap between them, therefore the line can’t be trimmed.

Next question then, is when i draw a line to the tangent, why is it not going to the tangent?
To the same end, I drew a circle, drew two line to tangents. One obviously didn't go to the tangent.
So I did a TTR circle, larger than the previous circle, to ensure it would hit the lines, yet it only goes to a tangent on one side?
Is there some setting that is causing this?
I do not know if it is related, but I can not get the lengthen total command to work properly either, it is always off to some .00000000003 or so.
I literally lengthen total some items to the same length, and then when i select them all, the properties show the length as VARIES.
