Straighten Points

(see also: Paths Overview)

The Straighten Points tool mceclip0.pngis used to straighten a section of a path. In some cases, when you trace an image, extra points are added to the traced path. Use this tool to eliminate these points.

  • Select the Straighten Points tool.
    • The Straighten Points tab appears in DesignCentral. It's normal that it only has Confirm and Cancel.
