[AD] Simultaneously break curve at several selected nodes (& keyboard shortcuts for all Actions)

Recommended Posts

I know that you are working on adding the ability to scale, move, & rotate only selected nodes of a shape in the workspace, but I don't know if this will enable being able to select several nodes & using the break curve Action button to break them all with one click.

 

That would be a real timesaver for me since as things are now I can only break a curve at one node at a time (& if two or more are selected there is no indication that no break has occurred).

 

Another timesaver would be keyboard shortcuts for at least this action, if not all of them.

 

As an aside, the knife tool already on the roadmap might make this feature irrelevant if it includes the ability to 'snap' to nodes for precision cuts.

Hi R C-R,

I've mentioned this to the dev team some time ago. Breaking just one node at a time does slow down things considerably. I don't know yet when (or if) this will be implemented, but you can already set shortcuts to Break and Join Curves in the Preferences ▸ Keyboard Shortcuts. Set the first dropdown to Draw and the second to Node Tool to configure them.

Thanks for the tip about the keyboard shortcuts. Now I just need to find an unused key combo for that ... & remember it.
