Q - question

How to convert lines and polylines to multilines?

A - answer The free utility LISP utility CADstudio PL2ML converts selected lines (LINE) and open or closed polylines (LWPOLYLINE) to multiline entities (MLINE).

The conversion process is simplified - arc segments are not converted (not available in MLines), color and layer of the original line are not retained, converted multiline is in the current mlstyle.

You can download the PL2ML utility from www.cadstudio.cz/download.
