Delete Handle

TouchDraw supports the insertion and deletion of handles or segments from an existing path. A different behavior is received depending on the type of handle chosen for deletion:

  • Cubic Curve Control Point Handle - Segment is converted to a quadratic curve segment upon deletion.
  • Quadratic Curve Control Point Handle - Segment is converted to a line segment upon deletion.
  • Segment End Point - The entire segment is removed including the control points (cubic or quadratic curves).

Follow the steps below to delete a Path Handle:

  1. Click on the desired handle to select it and then Right Click (Control-Click) to open the contextual menu. In this example, the Quadratic Curve Control Point Handle (indicated by the color green) is being removed from the path.
