Reducing Points

(see also: Paths Overview)

Reducing Points allows you to dramatically reduce the amount of points on a path, and can help smooth out complex shapes. Many paths that have been Autotraced have a number of extra points that should be removed.

  • Use the Select Tool to select a path and all of its points, or the Select Point Tool to select specific points in a path.
  • Select the Reduce Points tool.mceclip0.png
  • The Reduce Points tab appears in DesignCentral.
  • Adjust the Tolerance in DesignCentral. Lower values will follow the original path more closely; higher values will eliminate more points.
  • Click Apply or double-click anywhere inside the design area
