Breaking polylines at specified points.

A - answer To break selected polylines at multiple points - at the POINT objects placed along the polylines - you can use the LISP utility CADstudio BreakPls.

This tool prompts to select the polylines and then automatically breaks them. The points must be visible (PDMODE). An example of the original polylines and the status after BreakPls is illustrated on the following pictures:
