Editing a path
The Select tool can be used to edit a path: lines created with the Line tool, Freehand tool, Arc tools, Rectangle tools (after the rectangle is split), Circle tool, Ellipse tool (after the ellipse is split), and Polygon tool (after the polygon is split).
To edit a path:
- Select the Select tool () The cursor changes to an arrow ().
- Double-Click on an entity. LayOut enters the path editor. The following is an image of a circle in the path editor (a circle has four points, each with two curvature controls).
- Edit the path: move points, add points, remove points, or adjust curvature. Refer to Moving Points, Adding Points to a Path, Removing Points from a Path, and Adjusting Curvature of a Path.
- Click outside of the shape to exit the path editor.
