Help Needed in fine tuning a Shape in ShapeMaker

Recommended Posts

I have difficulty at times getting shapes to meet exactly at the correct points. I am sharing the xaml code of a RubberDuckie shape for an example. The beak lines do not meet perfectly with the body of the duck. Where in the xaml file do I manually change the numbers so that they meet at the correct point since when I try to alter the image in ShapeMaker it just goes slightly over the line or just shy of it. Thanks to you all ShapeMaker gurus 🙏.

Here are some steps for this specific situation.

1. Maximize the window, if you haven't done so already.

2. Edit menu -> 'Auto Scale Shape'

3. Zoom in to 10x

4. Disable 'Snap to Grid'

5. Move your points.

Unless you can interpolate all points of a Bezier Curve in your mind, manually editing the XAML correctly will be impossible.

(September 25th, 2023)  Sorry about any broken images in my posts. I am aware of the issue.
