How to remove arc segments from Pline?

A - answer If you want to remove all arc segments from a polyline - replace them by straight lines - use the PEDIT and its option Decurve.

To process multiple polylines, you can use the following LISP code (REMARC command):

(defun C:REMARC ( / i ssl ss e)
 (setq ss (ssget "_X" '((0 . "LWPOLYLINE"))))
 (setq i 0  ssl (sslength ss))
 (while (< i ssl)
  (setq e (ssname ss i))
  (command "_PEDIT" e "_De" "")
  (setq i (1+ i))
