Straightening Lines

The Straighten Points tool is used to straighten a section of a path. In some cases, when you trace an image, extra points are added to the traced path. Use this tool to eliminate these points.

  1. Select the Straighten Points tool.

    The Straighten Points tab appears in DesignCentral.

  2. Place the cursor over the path.
  3. Click the point where the straight line will begin.
  4. Click the point where the straight line will end.
  5. Drag the start and end points to adjust the position of the straight line.

  6. Click Apply or double-click anywhere inside the design area.
