Is there a way to remove a point from a curve and preserve its shape even without that point?
(say you added one to the right and one to the left to maintain a certain number of points)
hahaha, i asked this exact-same question here a while back.
I think the consensus opinion was sadly 'no'.
Don't think that is possible.
no. you'll have to pull the handles back out on the 2 new points.
... unless its a loose drawing, in which case the pen smooth tool works really well for simplifying curves.
Closest option (other than the obvious manual route, clearly) would be to use the Object\Path\Simplify command on the object, but for obvious reasons, I'd really not recommend it.
actually if you're really light and gentle with the smooth tool you can remove the point with very little effect on the other handles.
Try the Simplify command. I think it’s Object > Path > Simplify. It’s a little unpredictable, but it might work with a bit of fiddling.
Ok Thanks for the answers, but being a geometric piece it makes it diffucult.
Anwyay, backup question: Any way to use the "stylize>rounded corners" effect just on selected vertices/points?
can you remove a bottle of beer but there is no bottle?
does a tree fall in the woods if no one is around to hear?
why is a tree called a tree, and not a scissor?!
There's a simplify path tool that I've used a few times to remove the excess points also.
if a tree fell on top of tom cruise in a forest would anyone who heard it pretend they didn't so they could leave him there?
bump in case fariska missed my script link above.
That's very kind of you sir.
Ah yes, thanks for the bump - I meant to download those scripts on my working computer.
that's like asking if you can change an objects color from red to blue, but still have it look red.
