Q - question

Adding polyline vertices in fixed intervals.

A - answer Using the VTXdist utility you can automatically add vertices (vertex) to a selected polyline - in fixed-length intervals or in a given number of regular segments (along its length). This is a kind of grip-based DIVIDE/MEASURE (without breaking the polyline). See an example of the original and enhanced curves (grip-selected) with vertices added in 4 segments:

Download the LISP application VTXdist from, load it with APPLOAD and run the VTXDIST command. Specify the fixed length of the interval (station segment), or "N" to enter the number of regularly spread segments along the whole polyline length. The application supports only lighweight 2D polylines (LWPOLYLINE) and sections (SECTION).
