dimension lines

Thanks to all for the quick responses I got to my "fitted curves" post.
I can now use fitted curves and spline curves in a very precise fashion,
kewl :-) Here's some other things I haven't figured out yet......

- How do you change the thickness of dimension lines, say from
thinnest(1) to thick(5), without exploding the dimension and working on
each element independently.

- How do you convert a single line segment drawn with the "line single"
button into a polyline entity where I can allocate a real world
thickness.

thanks to all respondants

Second question: You can only convert a line to a polyline if you Trim Join it
to something. Floating in the breeze, you can only use the Line Thickness on the
Property Toolbar. Five choices there. Maybe you could play with converting a
single line to a Symbol, then Exploding. Who knows, I didn't try it.

First Question: Duh. I don't think there's a way other than Explode.

Hello

I use the Trim>Subdivide to convert lines to polylines. It then has
segments but if you do not want these use the clean tool under the right
mouse button when the entity is selected.

That's very neat. How'd you learn it?

I never saw that tip before. And it's so damn obvious, that's what hurts.

Roos, walabis, kiwis, kualas, crocs, Pauls. You guys got the market cornered.
What's a person to do?
