Common uses for PEDIT include joining 2D polylines,
converting lines and arcs into 2D polylines, and converting polylines
into curves that approximate B-splines (spline-fit polylines).
List of Prompts
The following prompts
Select polyline or
an object selection method or enter m
remaining prompts depend on whether you have selected a 2D
polylineor a 3D
If the selected object
is a line, arc, or a spline, the following prompt is displayed:
Object selected is
not a polyline.
Do you want it to turn
into one? <Y>: Enter y or n, or
If you enter y,
the object is converted into a single-segment 2D polyline that you
can edit. You can use this operation to join lines and arcs into
Before the selected spline
is converted to a polyline, the following prompt is displayed:
Specify a precision
<10>: Enter a new precision value or press Enter
The precision value determines
how accurately the resulting polyline is to fit to the source spline.
Valid value is an integer between 0 and 99.
NoteA high precision
value may cause performance problems.
The PLINECONVERTMODE system
variable determines whether the polylines are created with linear
or arc segments. When the PEDITACCEPTsystem
variable is set to 1, this prompt is suppressed, and the selected
object is automatically converted to a polyline.
The conversion in both
PEDIT and SPLINEDIT will obey the DELOBJ system variable.
