    I can't come up with a logical reason to draw a line with the intent to break it into separate parts of already known lengths. It is counter-productive. Don't fault AutoCad. There is no way to do it on paper either. In either media, erase it and draw the separate lines themselves. You either want; A. one long line, or B. A bunch of shorter lines at random lengths. Pick one choice and draw.

    I may be missing something, but I can't find it.

    The LINE command will allow one to draw varying length line segments along one path. Maybe that will work. If there is a line already there, just draw over it, selection cycle (or draw order) to the unneeded one, and erase.
    The S197 gen Ford Mustang, and the F-4 Phantom both prove the same theory. "With enough power applied, a school bus will fly."

    I hope the OP gets the "point".
    Drafting is a breeze.

    It certainly is mind blowing sometimes, how long people will waste trying to save time.
    Volume and repetition do not validate opinions forged in the absence of thought.
