    Default 2D Polylines with points

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I have a drawing with 2d polylines which when selected it highlights thousands of I assume points, how can I change the polyline to have minimal points. These are slowing my machine to a snail's pace.

    all help appreciated.


    Regards,

    Keith

    There is a lisp called "weed" I have not used it that helps to remove vertices.

    Just cut the line in pieces or upgrade your pc. If something like a lot of vertices slows down the drawing proces there must be something else wrong in the drawing.

    Copy the line to a empty drawing and see if it still slows down the computer. If all is fine then it's something else (perhaps the background image).
