Is there a function to divide a line in n parts?

Thanks

I too would love that capability.
I asked for it in another post.
Divide lines, circles and arcs into "x" number of parts is an extremely handy function that I miss from Acad (on my other machine).

Hopefully it will be considered for the next release?

Agreed. A much-needed function.
So, in the meantime has anyone a simple work-around, say I wanted to place 5 nodes on a given line at equal spacings....any ideas?

Hi RayArdia
In QCAD 3 you can use the Number of Points on a line tool.
