MDL application Clines can convert these elements into linestrings:
MDL application Clines can Arcs and Ellipses
There are two methods how to convert Arcs into LineStrings:
For examples, if in TextDialog Number Of Entered Vertexes is 3, that means that the Arc converted into LineString will have start and end points like in source Arc and 3 new vertexes will be symmetrically distributed on the Arc.
More number of entered vertexes causes that new linestring are more similar to original Arc and vice versa.
It is easy, but Arcs in the design has different of lengths, but the number of entered vertexes are the same.
It is better way how to convert Arcs elements into LineStrings, this method reflects to differences of Arc's length in design.
