Can you add line nodes?

Using the line/curve tool- can you add adjustable nodes to a line?


No. Each individual Line/Curve is a cubic curve, and cubic curves are determined by exactly four nodes. I've (twice) requested that there be a way to automatically use the end point of the previous curve as the starting point for the next curve, so curves could be easily strung together. I think that would help with what you want to do. There's always the ShapeMaker plugin, which allows for cubic splines with any number of nodes.

The underlying rendering primitives support it, via PolyCurveSegment, but the UI design and implementation complexity for the Line/Curve tool is holding it up. Right now there are just higher priorities that I need to work on.

How about ShapeMaker? You can use it to make lines with hundreds of nodes.
