Deletes nodes from lines and line segments, including objects created with double lines and multi lines. You can also delete nodes from Bezier curves, splines, and sketches.
You cannot delete a node that is needed to define an object as a line segment or polygon. This means that you cannot delete the endpoint of a single line segment, and you cannot delete any node of a triangle. If you delete the endpoint of a polyline, you will delete the entire line segment that terminates at that point.
- To delete a single node, use the Edit Tool on the object from which you want to delete a node.
- Press Ctrl while placing the cursor where you want to delete the node. The cursor becomes a "trash can" symbol.
- Click to delete the node. The adjacent nodes will be connected to form a new segment.
You can also use the local menu to delete one or more nodes. Within the Edit Tool, drag a selection window around the node or nodes you want to delete. Selected nodes turn from blue to magenta. Then select Delete Node(s) from the local menu.
Note: If you remove a node from a polygon, the polygon will remain closed, but will become an irregular polygon.
You can also delete nodes from Bezier curves, splines, and sketches.
