Solved: How can I use double line in AutoCAD 2016

Hey everyone

Older versions of AutoCad used to have a ‘Double Line’ command and icon which had an input area for the distance between lines.

The the latest AutoCAD 2016 version I just upgraded to it seems to have disappeared?!

Is it possible to get this ‘Double Line’ shortcut icon back along with the other drawing commands?

Hi there Ron,

Dline only exists on AutoCAD LT versions and old versions of AutoCAD, instead;

You can use the “MLINE” (miltiline) command here’s how to use it.

Try it out tell me how it goes for you 🙂

If you’d like any more information then check out this AutoCAD MLINE description.

An alternative might be the Offset command. Just click on the line or polyline that you want to make a double off, type OFFSET, set the offset distance, and presto – you have your double line.
