Break a Line/Polyline into Two

To complete our task we will of course use the built-in AutoCAD command BREAK. But we won’t break the line at two points and then extend one part to the other. We will do it at once! To see how just follow the Steps Below:

  1. First, Start BREAK command by entering in the Command line. Or select the BREAK tool.
  2. Secondly, select the object you want to break at point.
  3. Then, AutoCAD will prompt to Specify second break point or [First point]: hit F for First Point
  4. Now, Select the point where you want to make the Split.
  5. Next, AutoCAD will prompt to Specify second break point or [First point]: , now type in “@” and hit Enter!
