    I came across a tool within Allegro a while ago that illustrated the use of a command that allowed a user to draw a series of contiguous lines (not Clines) with a uniform spacing.  I can't seem to find this tool again.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Are you sure it ws Allegro ?? You can do this with clines - Route - Add Connect then RMB (right mouse button) Multi-Line Route then pick your origin and enter the details. For lines you could draw a line then use Edit - Copy and then set the Copy Mode to Rectangular in the Options menu (fold out menu on the right hand side) as well as qty and spacing. This might give you what you need.

    Thanks Steve,

    Multi-Line route was what I was thinking of  / looking for.  Just couldn't remember where it was hidden.
