Segment to Line

The Segment To Line action will convert either a quadratic or a cubic curve segment into a straight line segment. Essentially, it discards the control points of the curve.

In the provided example, a Quadratic Curve Segment is changed to a Line Segment. Follow the steps below:

  1. Click on the desired segment to select it and then Right Click (Control-Click) to open the contextual menu.

       

  2. Select the Path Submenu and then choose Segment to Line.

  3. The control point (green) of the Quadratic Curve Segment is removed and the segment is changed to a Line Segment to create a rectangle, as shown below.

       

The following screenshots show the resulting line when the Segment to Line action is performed on a Cubic Curve Segment.
