Q - question

Easily convert all lines, arcs and circles to polylines.

A - answer With the Map's MAPCLEAN command, you can easily change all your drawing lines, arcs, circles and 3D polylines to classic polylines or circles to arcs.

Select the objects (or use All), from the cleanup options select one of 'safe' methods - e.g. Delete duplicates (with any parameters) and in the last step choose in the "Convert selected objects" field the requested conversion - e.g. "Circle to polyline" plus "Arc to polyline". Start the cleanup - the command performs the conversion on the selected objects (even if they do not qualify for the cleanup method). The number of converted objects is listed.
