Why there's extra node when I combine two objects?

Recommended Posts

Umm, just delete it?

But seriously.... Basically it appears that even when separate curves have nodes at the same co-ordinates, the combine and add functions do not destroy any nodes, they are joined by a length of zero. It appears to me that it allows the shape of the line from the original curves to stay the same when combined w. the others. 

I'm going to guess that what you show was from a combine where the nodes were not on top of each other, and so you can see both.

Hi gdenby, I thought much the same but its not that, I drew the same shape and aligned the nodes bang on, if you delete either one of the nodes the shape is lost, the nodes maintain the sharp Angle and the curve, odd but it works. The same node configuration is also at the top of the shape.

Yes.. if I delete the red nodes, it will change the shape.

Thank you for the answer guys.. :)

Hi hello coccus,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
This is a knows issue with boolean operations. In certain circumstances it does create these redundant nodes. Only a rewrite of the tool/boolean operations code will fix this and a couple issues we find out since then. For now the best you can do is simply to ignore the node (to keep the shape's form intact).
