Eliminating Extra Points
Many paths that have been Autotraced have a number of extra points that should be removed.
- Use the Select Tool to select a path and all of its points, or the Select Point Tool to select specific points in a path.
- Select the Reduce Points tool.
The Reduce Points tab appears in Design Central.
- Adjust the Tolerance in DesignCentral. Lower values will follow the original path more closely; higher values will eliminate more points.
- Click Apply or double-click anywhere inside the design area.
