deleting vertices

Question

I would like to delete many vertices of a polygon/polyline at the same time. A bit like that rectangle you can draw to move a part of a polygon/line. Now we need to delete vertex per vertex, it is really time consuming.

A workaround:

Convert to Lines, use Rectangular/Lasso Selection mode to select unwanted "areas", Delete, Select what remains, Compose, new polygon.

Create a polygon that engulfs the vertices to be deleted, and add that to your original shape. Not to dismiss the requested functionality - I think it would be great to be able to select multiple vertices and delete.

In addition, I'd like to be able to thin the number of vertices in a poly- object. For example, surveyor's contours often come in to VW with hundreds of vertices where tens would do the job. So my request is that we have a utility that will cull vertices - for example, select an object and cut out 4 of every 5 vertices, and also, select a set of vertices within an object and do the same.

Pete - the Optimise Drawing add on from Vectorbits has the capability to simplify polygons. I use it for exactly what you are suggesting. It does several other things as well. Well and truly worth the 30 Euros purchase price. http://www.vectorbits.com/
