The Break vectors command breaks lines, arcs, circles, polylines, ellipses, splines and other vector objects into two parts. A break can be performed by deletion of a part of it (breaking of the object at two points) or without deletion (breaking of the object at one point). Some closed objects for example, circle, ellipse, cannot be broken in one point.

To break an object at one point, at the command prompt to enter the second point, enter @0,0:
