"Flares" at the end of pathways

Recommended Posts

I want to be able to "flare" the ends of my pathways, as the dotted lines show in the attached file. How does one do this??

If this pathway is a hardscape object with a boundary:

Right click the Hardscape>Convert to Boundary.

If nec, engage Reshape Tool (dbl click or Basic Palette) in Move mode.

Drag the end points (or other vertices) as nec.

To conceal start and end borders, set the mode bar to Show/Hide edge.

Toggle Mode Bar options for move, add, delete, convert vertices, and Show/Hide edges.


This does not work via the OIP>Hardscape Settings>Boundary/Pathway buttons.

Has to be Right Click to reveal context menu, choose Convert to Boundary.

After conversion, the Hardscape Settings shows this as a Boundary object.

Post back if your path is not a Hardscape. Or if this isn't working for you.

You are a lifesaver! Thank you! And I discovered that I can set a "boundary" to 0" and the process still works. Great for pathways that don't have an actual boundary.
