Pick a polyline and this AutoLISP routine automatically dimensions the y distances.

Terry Miller earns the November 2008 top tip prize for Automatically Dimension Polylines. To use this marvelous tool, draw a polyline and load the LISP code. Type DPL at the Command prompt to activate the function and pick the polyline. This routine automatically dimensions the y distances. The current dimension variables are used as defaults. Y distance dimensions are created from one vertex to the next along with an overall y distance. The program is nicely structured so you can modify it to automatically dimension other items or properties if you are inclined to play with the LISP code.
