Unlike common array function, LayoutByPath distributes object copies along a path (curve) with a variety of array options. Users can choose random, division and measure options and array in different directions along the path.

Benefits of LayoutByPath
-Easy way to distribute object copies along a path.
-Efficient distribution options such as: random, division and measure.

You can access to AreaSum from:

Menu:Express tools > Edit > Layoutbypath Command Entry:Layoutbypath Ribbon:Express tools > Edit > Layoutbypath

For example on mapping drawing, we can apply this tool to array the discontinuous central axis of the road or highway as shown below:

As it is showed, designers can adjust the angle and length of the object at will and distribute them along the path by the options of random, division and measure; it's very easy to distribute object copies along a path and efficient for highway designing.
