autocad question

hello all,
i'm just wondering if there's a command in autocad which can be used to break a line in equal parts.
for ex I have a line of 20 mm . li want to divide it into 4 equal parts,
whan i use the command 'divide' it only create dots at 50 mm intervals. also i cannot snap to these dots !
do you know any command to divide a line into equal parts?
thx

Hi

Many ; --------- you divide and ansver 5 not 4 as this is AutoCAD, but instead of placing a dot, you can't se before you changed both Pdmode and Pdstyle - still AutoCAD ;)) , You draw a short line, that you make into a block "a" . Then when Divide ask number of segments or "Block" you ansver "Block" --- AutoCAD right --- and then you ansver A to place block "A" to divide the line instead of a dot . --------- now all you need, is to explode the 4 blocks that is placed or find them with an SSget call , and now come the great AutoCAD trick, as now you can make the first new line, from "end" point to intersection of the endpoints of the exploded A block ( the original line contained in the A block, --------- and the end point of the first line and mid point of same , -------- now as this is AutoCAD, please remember the "T" parameter in the inters function. Now if you continue the same way, as this is Autocad , starting with the obvious @ for start point of next fourth part line, and Inters again for end point of second line, you soon get the grip of it, ------------ already now, you proberly spended two hours, in the attempt, drawing 5 lines with AutoCAD. Still as this is AutoCAD, you could have divided an ellipse the same way ;)) P.C. Have a nice day http://www.designcommunity.com/scrapbook/2648.html
