Request: Add handlers (Line/Curve Tool)

Recommended Posts

As the title indicates, I would like to suggest to increase (and maybe reduce) the number of handlers which appear when drawing a curve/line, for example via key(combination) ("+" / "-").

This would allow better handling of curves and in general the creation of more advanced ones.

I'm sure there's a complex and very mathematically oriented reason that this has not been implemented...

But what do I know? :wink:

If it's possible this would make a fine addition.

I believe if this ever happened...it would have to be a post-4.0 thing. But it has been requested before. Multiple times since I've been here.

Same, and every time I agreed.

EDIT: 1337 post Finally i'm a leet :D

I believe Rick has said that the current rendering architecture prohibits this modification. As T_Lh said, it should be possible with the rendering architecture planned for v4.0. But I'm not sure whether it will be implemented, just that it'll likely be possible. :-)

This was something I asked for a while back, and Rick agreed with no ETA. I have always wanted more nodes, but now I am quite use to having to have more lines than necessary.

Perhaps the Line Tool could have an additional parameter on the menu bar, or the user could add handles on the fly by double clicking the active line.

Also, styles need to include Parallel Lines, and a parameter to set the distance between them.

Something like this would bee a great new feature.

I think I once suggested a sort of “snap to line” feature. A function that would make it easier to join a line onto/after the previous one you made. Say fixes the starting point of a new line, to the end of the previous.

But for now, I believe the best suggestion; is for Rick to put this in “The most popular request” :wink:
