Hi there,
is there any option to create /change a smoothing paths from countless nodes?

i have a big puzzle put together to one object and thousands of nodes. I would like to reduce them.
Convert: "smooth" does not work, may be because it's an "union object"

While the "smooth" widget will sometimes remove a few nodes, AD doesn't have a curve simplifying routine as yet. The apps I've used that do will often slightly change the shape of the vector, so they can't be used when shapes that need to be closely positioned,

I had no idea that this basic feature was missing.

It's been requested numerous times over the years. Having just changed computers, I'm torn between installing a very old copy of Illustrator or Inkscape...

While I appreciate the recently-updated suite, I sure wish Affinity would nail these basics, many of which have been around elsewhere for a very long time.
