Unable to create polyline from segments

Postby armhoge » Thu Oct 02, 2008 6:58 pm

Hi All

New to the program but I have run into a few issues.
I also assume the correct way is to raise each issue under a sep topic.
version Pro on OSX 10.5.5

I chose Draw > Polyline > Create from segments
Command line changes to "Specify a segment"
cursor is large double/line cross.
No mater whay I try to click on nothing is selected and the command line stays at "Specify a segment" and no error indications at all.
I can click on polylnes lines circles anything and nothing gets selected

thanks for any help

This tool does not visually select entities. As soon as you click a segment of a series of connected lines, all connected lines are converted into a polyline. You might want to verify this after using this tool by selecting the segment. After a successful conversion, the whole polyline should then be selected.

It does work as you explained.
It is a bit odd though ... not to have any feedback that you have selected a segment.

Thanks for you help Andrew
