An overlapping line is broken with 3.5 drawing units on each side by simply picking the intersection point.

Line Breaks
Another utility from Lee Thompson is a simple example for Breaking Lines (Tip #2057). An overlapping line is broken with 3.5 drawing units on each side by simply picking the intersection point. The last object drawn at that intersection will be broken under the normal AutoCAD default selection rules. Why 3.5 drawing units? Lee said the value worked well with the 1/8-scale drawings he creates. You can easily adjust the distance setting in the source code to fit your needs. Load the function BREAK35, and type Brkline to run Lee's example. Then just pick the intersection point for the break to occur.
