Multiple Divide

Divide is a command in AutoCAD which allows you to place blocks on a linear entity. With 'Multiple Divide' you can place blocks on multiple linear entities with several additional options. Like the divide command you can define the number of segments which determines the amount of blocks that should be placed. By default the command the blocks are aligned. And by default all blocks which are placed on the same linear entity will be grouped. You can turn both options off in the main menu of the command. If you want you can also let the command place a block on the start and end of the linear entities. If you didn't use the command in a session yet the command will ask you to select a block before it will start to place them. When you select a block you also select the layer on which the block will be placed. You can also select a different block through the block option in the main menu.
