Line to perimeter conversion?

Post by MJN » Tue Nov 06, 2018 10:44 am

Hello,

So, this might be a pipe dream, but would it be at all possible to convert Lines to Perimeter-lines?

I do construction quantity takeoffs and often the customer has already defined what he wants on floor plans, using a pdf Line tool. It seems pretty stupid that I'm doing the exact same work with the Perimeter tool to get the length of the walls -If I could just 'convert' the Lines to Perimeter lines, impress the boss, get the girl and Bob's your uncle/Robert is you mothers brother :roll:

Take a look at viewtopic.php?f=62&t=27327&p=105909&hilit=sum#p105909. You may find some clues there.

Hello MJN,

Polygon line, and the Perimeter tool (I am using the names as provided in the Editor), seem to be related in the PDF specification, so I will check with our devs if such a feature is something we might consider!

Regards,
Stefan

Hello MJN,

The request was approved, and I created a FR ticket in our internal system:
#4552: FR: Convert Polylines to Perimeter-annotations

I can not give you any estimates as to when this might be implemented, but as soon as it is - I will post again here in this topic.

Regards,
Stefan

Hello MJN,

The feature to convert lines to distance and polylines to perimeter is now implemented and will be available from the next build 329:
