Converting Polylines to Polygons
Concept Procedure Quick Reference

To convert polylines to polygons

  1. Set the PROXYGRAPHICS system variable to 0.
  2. On the command line, enter mappolylinetopolygon. Press Enter.
  3. If you already had a selection set, the selected closed polylines are converted. If you did not have a selection set, select the polylines to convert. Press Enter.

    Each closed polyline in the selection set is converted. If the polyline belongs to a group, only the first (outermost) polyline is converted. Other polylines in the group are copied into the polygon as additional boundaries and the polygon is rebalanced.

When objects are converted to polygons, they use the color or hatch set by the MPFILL command.
