Command to continue polyline

Command to continue polyline

It would be nice if there was a command to continue a polyline. I know you can add vertices by hovering over a vertex or a mid-point.  I know you can add vertices by using the petit command, but these options can be kind of cumbersome when you want to continue a polyline from the end point.  I know there are lisp routines out there that claim to do just this.  I just think it would be something simple to add to AutoCAD.

How is it done?  Is it a lisp or an addin?  Why can't it just be a part of AutoCAD?

(a) + (b) Yes,that is a lisp routine I wrote.

 

(c) - Only Autodesk can answer that.

Would you be willing to share your lisp here?

@rkmcswain:  impressive!  That looks SOOOOO much better than drawing a new pline and then needing to go back and join it with the original.

I agree, but should this be an adea in the AutoCad section rather than Civil 3D?

It should...... If there were one.

Right now, the best we can hope for is the C3D team passes things like this
to the Acad team.

Thanks. I assumed. My bad. I have used AutoCAD  20 years. I should be used to a certain level inconsistency.

@rkmcswain: lol Could I possibly try out that "awesome" routine?
