Finding the length of an Arc w/ Lengthen - Part 1
*Applies to: AutoCAD R13, 14, 2000, 2000i, 2002, 2004 and 2005*

This is the first in a series of ways to find a length of an Arc.  This first one will probably be found no place else due to the commands infrequent use.  This example shows how to find the length of an Arc with the command called Lengthen.

Command Line:
Command: lengthen (or len)
DElta/Percent/Total/DYnamic/<Select object>:
Current length: 15.2116, included angle: 95.0765

To exit the command simply press the {ESCape} or {ENTER} key.
