Q - question

Cumulative DIST command.

A - answer The standard AutoCAD DIST command measures only distances between two points.

If you want to measure a cumulative (total) distance defined by consecutive point clicks (multiple line segments), you can use the DIST2 LISP utility by CAD Studio, available on www.cadstudio.cz/download.

APPLOAD it into AutoCAD and start the DIST2 command.
