How to draw a line?

This is the first of our many tutorials. Drawing a line is the first thing people get to learn and also the simplest command of all. It is very easy to understand and helpful to get a feeling how the software runs.

CAD Tip of the Month

Have you ever tried to delete a layer and you get this dialogue box on the right? That is because that layer contains objects in it or it is an xref dependent layer. Therefore, you cannot delete it.

Now you can, by using the command LAYDEL. It will let you delete the layer whether it is being used or not.

Keep in mind though, it will also delete any object on that layer from the drawing.
