To take a great shortcut feature from Bluebeam.... Is it possible, when editing/modifying a polyline type object to add/delete nodes using the ctrl key. This can be done from the reshape tool, and/or the selection too to speed modifying up, without having to change tools or their option settings. holding the ctrl key down and clicking on a line a vertex node is created. If you ctrl+click on an existing node it is deleted. Tool tips appear with + or - to show what will happen when you click. Its a nice feature ! 🙂
I have this half moon shape and I want to simultaneously adjust these two vertices: If I use the marquee select tool within the Reshape tool: After selection, the vertices disappear and I'm not selecting anything: If I also marquee around the vertex in the middle: So it seems you can only select multiple vertices that are adjoining. Is that the correct thinking?
Scenario Let's say you want to select some vertices of a polygon, but your window is full of other polygons, so there's no clear space to start dragging the Marquee.Current Solution Apart from panning to find free space (as attached screen recording example-1.mov), you can select the relevant polygon, activate the Reshape tool, then hold the Shift key down and you can start dragging the Marquee from anyway without accidentally selecting one of the other polygons. The Problem The problem is that there's no clue for the user that the Shift key behaves in this way because the cursor does not change to a Marquee cursor when holding the Shift key (as the cursor does if you mouse over free space). And the reason for this is that with the Shift key is still also operating as a modifier for multiple selection. i.e. if you hold the Shift key and simply click on another polygon—rather than drag straight away—then it will select that polygon so that you now have two polygons selected. Suggested Solution Instead of using the Shift key to tell the cursor to ignore other polygons so you can drag a Marquee, use the Option key. This way the Shift key can be dedicated to multiple selection and if the Option key is held down then the cursor can change to a Marquee cursor.
