Polyline of specific length

Hi there :slight_smile:

I was doing some Egress calculations, and wondered if the following feature is possible or exists already.

With a polyline, is it possible to set a specific total length such that not mater how many clicks you make, it will stop after the specified length?


Hi Jeremy - it does not exist now - if all you need is a polyline from placed points and none of the fancy polyline tools it should be easy to script .

LimitedPolyline.py (6.6 KB)

To use the Python script use RunPythonScript, or a macro:

_-RunPythonScript "Full path to py file inside double-quotes"

This is truly excellent Pascal; thanks so much :slight_smile:


@jdelavaulx fwiw, I entertained myself adding more feedback - updated above, no idea if that is helpful in real ife or not.


Already got the alias LPL :slight_smile:
