The Lengthen Command is a command in AutoCAD that increases the length of a line.

To use the Lengthen Command in AutoCAD, you first need to select the line or circle that you want to lengthen. Then, type LENGHEN at the command prompt and press enter. The length of your selection will increase by the amount that you specify.

The Lengthen command in AutoCAD is used to extend a line, arc, or polyline. This command can be used to create a new line parallel to the original one or to extend an existing line. The user can also specify the distance that they want the line extended.

The Lengthen command has three options:

  • Extension Line Parallel - extends the line parallel to the original one
  • Extension Line Perpendicular - extends the line perpendicular to the original one
  • Extension Distance - specifies how much of an extension (in units)

To use the Lengthen command, tap and hold the note you want to lengthen. A small white box will appear with a number in it - that number represents how many seconds you want to extend the note by. Drag your finger up or down to change the number until it matches what you want, then release your finger to save your changes.

The Lengthen command is one of the most commonly used commands in AutoCAD. It is often used by engineers and other professionals who are involved in drafting or designing. The Lengthen Command can be found in the Line menu, which appears when you right-click on a line or select the Line tool from the Draw toolbar.
