Add ability to convert a vertex on polyline from straight line to arc

HI,

As per subject line. However, if I missed somehow that there is an exisiting functionality for that, please add a clear description of how to accomplish this to the manual.

Cheers
Chris

Hi Chris,

Yes, that is possible via the Object Info panel. Use the "Convex" slider and field to change the amount of convexity of a segment.

1. Select the polyline and use the arrows on the Object Info panel to select the vertex (btw, we are adding a faster method to do that).
2. Use the Convex slider and field to change the convexity of the segment that starts at that vertex. Values range from -100% (full concavity) to 100% (full convexity). A value of 0 means that the segment is a straight line.

Take a look at this short video to see it in action: https://youtu.be/o1i9JnRJAXM

We will review the documentation about this topic, thanks for pointing it out!
