  • removing path components in PS

    if i create a path, consisting of several path components, but then figure that i would want to remove a component... how would i accomplish this without deleting the whole entire path?

    use the delete anchor point tool in the sub menu of the pen tool

      thanks!

        If you're on the pen tool, you can just hover over a point, and you'll see the delete tool pop up (the minus sign will appear next to the pen head cursor). You can also add points to a line by hovering over a line segment until the + sign appears.

        You can hold CTRL/CMD to access the last used selection tool. If this is the white arrow tool (you can cycle through the two on a Windows system by using CTRL-TAB), then you can select an individual point, and SHIFT select multiple points. You can then delete all the selected points by pressing backspace or delete.

          You don't need to select each point one-by-one.

          Direct select tool (white pointer)- Alt-click, selects all points that are connected in a path line. Followed by: DEL

            I like to line things up - on screen, on my desk, in the cupboards etc. Also I never place things in say InDesign at a random position - it has to be at say 10mm or 10.25, 10.5 etc.

            I'd normally let these kinds of things go as a matter of opinion, but in this case, with people recommending vBulletin, I need to say something.
