The Multiline Command

By DMN Staff Writer
Let's talk about the multiline command. That's a pretty new command. It was introduced with AutoCAD 14. It's still there in AutoCAD 2000. I think it'll stay.

These are the prompts of the command:


Justification = Top, Scale = 20.00, Style = STANDARD
Justification/Scale/STyle/:
:
Undo/:
Close/Undo/:

At the first prompt the settings of the command are displayed. The starting point is entered at the second prompt.

The next point is entered at the third prompt. At the fourth and the fifth prompt two more points are entered.

At the fourth prompt the Undo option appears. If that option is entered then the last entered point is removed. And the removed point can be entered again.

The fifth prompt also has the Close option. When that option is invoked a multiline to the first point entered is drawn.

These are the options of the command:

- Justification
- Scale
- Style

These options are available at the second prompt. To invoke them the capitalized letter is entered at the prompt.

Here's an explanation of each option:
