The Draw Polyline command Red line icon.PNG allows you to add a new polyline to the map:

The values of Segment and Angle, which appear on the top-right of the mouse symbol when drawing a line segment on the map, correspond to the length and orientation specification of the segment, respectively. When plotting a polyline, there are basically two methods to specify the geographic location of each line segment:

Method 1: Mouse-Controlled

Click somewhere (the point where you want the polyline to begin) on the map to start the line drawing mode. Then drag the mouse cursor to the end point of the line segment, and click to clinch the line segment and (if necessary) to start drawing a new segment. Repeat the process until the polyline is complete, and then double click to finalize the polyline.

Method 2: Capture window

The Capture window opens automatically when you choose a command from the Redline tab. There are two text boxes, Distance and Angle. Distance corresponds to the line segment length, whereas Angle specifies the orientation of the line segment. The line segment can then be plotted at the orientation interval specified in the Angle text box. Type the corresponding values into the respective text box, and click Lock deactivated.png to turn it into Lock activated.png. This locks the mouse-based positioning mode and causes the line segment to be drawn according to the parameters.
