Copy a Node/Segment, or a Selection of Them

Recommended Posts

Love to be able to copy single nodes, line segments, or a selection of nodes – including the exact geometry of any curve handles – and then paste it/them into the front node an open curve.

With the option of pasting its mirror version – vertical, horizontal, or both.


It is very hard to manually make a curve exactly match another one.

Repeatability is crucial for precise work.


Snapping control handles (when they arrive) will sure help, but copy/paste of any of a curve's (or shape's) selected bits would be supremo!


You can easily copy an entire curve/shape, but not parts of one. 

You can do the former, delete what you don't need, and then attach the bits you need; but that's a long way round.


I apologize if you've heard any or all of this before (and please correct me if any of this is already possible).


Oh, and as Sven Kalkschmidt already suggested, the functionality of the following Illustrator plugin looks amazingly useful:




Thanks for your attention, and keep up the awesome programming, Serif/Affinity!
