circles turning into polylines

Post by ljbuller » Fri May 31, 2019 3:21 am

I am not quite sure when this takes place, but I have a bunch of circles that are turning into polylines. any hint on where this may be taking place or how I can prevent this? In the file, all the circular polylines started out as circles. After various editing, importing blocks etc, they turned into polylines.

If you use the explode tool on a circle it will convert the circle to a polyline. If you then use the explode tool on that "polyline circle" it will convert it to arcs.

HMM, I must have used an explode on a block and then exploded the entities again...
