Here is a semi-serious way to draw lines - parallel to each other by just moving the cursor to front or back to paint the lines.... this is just for fun....

like others...
you can make (command "_.line")
or (vl-cmdf "_.line)
and so on...

But you can also use PLINE with width "0" or command "Trace"..do you forget it ?
you can use "_.SPLINE" "_.XLINE" "_.RAY" depending what you need..

You can make a block containing a simple line at length "0" and insert it, stretch it and...

you can use "(entmake)" <- (I prefer this when it's possible)

why ? because lot of version with lot of language..English / French and blah blah blah..
so the command is not the same. but if you want to use the "LINE" command...
don't forget to put the "_." before !

otherwise...... :pissed:
Keep smile...
