Dividing a line or entity equally?

I have an entity (a railing, in this case) that I need to divide into three equal spans. Is there a tool that will divide a dimension into X number of equal intervals?

You can divide a line or a circular arc. Select it with the Edit tool and type the desired number of segments in the "Divide to" box on the Inspector Bar. Then, while the object is still selected, right-click on it and choose "Divide segment" (for a line) or "Arc divide" (for an arc) from the Local Menu.

Thank you so much. It took a little fooling around to get it to work, but I finally got it with Edit Node tool. Never would have figured that one out by myself.
