I do get your point and thank you, Wade...
I fiddled with those points and saw quickly that the letterform would have to have large parts of it re-drawn/re-shaped..Do you have a technique for quickly dealing with that?
Phantasm's Vectorscribe plugin has a smart remove point.
Your welcome as JoeStudio suggest you could look into Phantasm's VectorScribe and Ihink there is also another plug in as well that can make it easier.
Anything else I write about this is going to be censored!
