Add the specified number of points spaced evenly along a polyline, or add points separated by a specified distance. Similar to the Divide function in ArcMap.
The distances are calculated in the native units of the dataset's coordinate system (regardless of the Distance Units specified for the view).
Eg, if the datasets are stored in decimal degres, they must be projected to another coordinate system (eg UTM in meters) in order to use another distance measure.
Requires a view with at least 1 polyline theme. Use the button at the far right of the view buttonbar to launch the dialog.
To "transfer" the line attributes to the output point theme, the easiest approach is to perform a spatial join. Refer to the ArcView help file under "spatial join" for further information.
