This tip is an easy way to convert lines into polylines. Although, it doesn’t actually convert the lines into Polylines, it finds a closed are (bounding area) and creates a polyline on top of the geometry.
To do this:
- BPOLY <enter> to start the BPOLY command
- Click the “Pick Points” button that appears in the dialog box.
- Click within a closed (bounding) area.
- This will create a copy of the bounded area as a polyline on top of the closed area. So either be prepared to move the polyline or erase the lines…
