Q - question

Simply add or delete a polyline vertex.

A - answer To edit vertices of a polyline in AutoCAD, you can use the standard PEDIT command or grip editing.

Easier, interactive adding (inserting) of new vertices, or deleting (removing) existing vertices can be done with the help of the free LISP utility CADstudio AddV. With its commands AddV and DelV you can add or delete a polyline vertex just be picking a point with your mouse cursor.

There are two versions of the "add" and "del" commands - either with a single click for select and add/delete (AddV1, DelV1) or with a separate select and click to add/delete (AddV, DelV).

You can download the AddV utility from, load it with APPLOAD.
