    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'.

    • 'hahaha'? Don't read that as a manic laugh. That'd be just odd.Nairn1/2
      oh right, I remember... you also did the image to explain!Fariska2/2

    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.

    • good one. and actually is pretty accurate if you only select the 3 points to be simplified.inkpink

    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.

    • this is me toying with a tablet.. not sure if you'll be able to achieve with a mouse click

    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?

    • Seems not but worth asking.Fariska1/3
      not really. i direct select them, cut and paste infront, round, then reconnect pathinkpink2/3
      Ok thanks again.Fariska3/3

    can you remove a bottle of beer but there is no bottle?

    • Is this a trick question? Does the answer involve sticking it up your ass?Nairn

    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?

    • Are you implying that that tree is gay?MrOneHundred1/2

    that's like asking if you can change an objects color from red to blue, but still have it look red.
