CAD drafting Multiline 6 Command line: MLINE

Multiline contains parallel lines (items). You can select style, scale and justification.

By default STANDARD style is used, which consists of two elements. To assign another style, it should be created in advance.

Justification defines which side or center line will be used.

The scale value determines the total width of the multiline in current units. The scale factor is determined based on the width specified in the multiline style definition. For example, with a scale of 2, the multiline is twice as wide as specified in the style description.

Command options:

Top          - Draws the multiline below the cursor, so that the line with the most positive offset is at the specified points.

Zero         - Draws the multiline with its origin centered at the cursor, so that the MLSTYLE Element Properties offset of 0.0 is at the specified points.

Bottom     - Draws the multiline above the cursor, so that the line with the most negative offset is at the specified points.
