Explode Polylines to Lines

This used to exist up until recently - now it just breaks a Polyline into lots of little Polylines. Do you want this function restored?

Linework consolidation does the trick as workaround for now.

voted yes too... and should include arc, circle as well... those bits end up as little polylines too..

BTW, option click in Line tool over polyline will duplicate as LINES / ARCs

Thanks guys for bringing this up. I asked our engineering to check this to see whether we can restore the original way to explode polylines to lines.

What was the answer from the engieering dept. in 2013 ? :--)
A radio-button for explode decision either PL or L would be helpful.
