  • 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

      okay so just delete the specific component path's anchor one by one then.
      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

            thank you both for the feedback!!
            placing the info was the hard part and I think I concentrated too much on fitting things in instead of hierarchy or the flow.

            I find everything seems to have a decent balance to it. I do, however, find that that balance is off put in certain places around the infographic where the imagery overwhelm the type such as, the "Who...

            Agree

            Maybe sit down a bit and plan your layout a bit more and remember hierarchy. Should "Self Care" really draw my eyes away from "Treatment" like it does or should...

            Agreeing with cosmo here, not like feeling your way to success. I should take this advice more seriously myself.
