Breaking entities

You can break arcs, circles, ellipses, lines, polylines, rays, and infinite lines. When breaking entities, you must specify two points for the break. By default, the point you use to select the entity becomes the first break point; however, you can use the First option to select a break point different from the one that selects the entity.

To break an entity

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Modify > Break.
    • On the Modify toolbar, click the Break tool ().
    • Type break and then press Enter.
  2. Select the entity.
  3. Specify the second break point.

 

 

 

Select the entity (A), and then specify the second break point (B).

 

Result.

To select an entity and then specify the two break points

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Modify > Break.
    • On the Modify toolbar, click the Break tool ().
    • Type break and then press Enter.
  2. Select the entity.
  3. In the prompt box, choose First.
  4. Specify the first break point.
  5. Specify the second break point.

 

 

 

Select the entity (A), and then specify the first (B) and second (C) break points.

 

Result.


TIP To break an entity in two without removing a portion of the entity, specify the same point for the first and second break points by typing the at sign (@) and pressing Enter instead of specifying the second break point.
