And 2, the time advantage you gain from not going the guessing one or two times is annihilated by all the erasing you have to do of all those arc lines before you begin drawing. Plus, once I'd found that middle distance, I'd still be getting out my divider to transpose it to the other line segments. <BR/><BR/>Two arcs IS the correct way to find a midpoint geometrically, but it ends up being a fairly wonky solution for the comic page. BUT!-- I'm really happy to see you're reading this with a critical eye and that you're contributing when you see missing information.

Place one end at one end of your line. Mark an arc that crosses the original line and extends far enough on either side that when you make the same arc from the other end of the line, you get two points of intersection (like a venn diagram). The line connecting those two points of intersection will always go straight through the exact midpoint of your line. Geometrically.
