You can either...

... interpolate line objects like contour lines or
... interpolate point objects e.g. when you want to draw an avenue.

  4. Choose the Icon InterpolateObjects.PNG Interpolate Objects function.
  5. The Interpolate Objects dialog opens.
  6. Enter the number of objects you want to insert between the two lines.
  7. Choose a symbol for the inserted lines.
  8. Click the OK button to finish the interpolation.

Point objects

Interpolate point objects
  1. Place two point objects in the drawing area.
  2. Select both points (Select Multiple Objects).
  3. Choose the Icon InterpolateObjects.PNG Interpolate Objects function.
  4. The Interpolate Objects dialog opens.
  5. Enter the number of objects you want to insert between the two point objects.
  6. Choose a symbol for the inserted point objects.
  7. Click the OK button to finish the interpolation.



hint -Inspect the Symbol in the Interpolate Objects dialog box for correct interpolating.

-Instead of using the Interpolate Objects function for point objects it is also possible to use the Icon DrawingMultiplePointObjects.PNG Drawing multiple point objects tool.
