Remove sides from rectangles

Jan 3, 2013 7:57 PM



This is something I've googled carefully in vain. I would like to remove both sides from vector rectangle shapes as this site is probably showing just below the dynamic slide:


In attempt to do that, I ungrouped the rectangle shape but could not remove the sides. It would be appreciated if anyone gave me advice on this.


Thank you,

    I think the Path panel may provide the best solution here.


    First, ungroup the rectangle. Then choose Window > Path (if the panel's not already open). Within the Edit Points subcategory, there's a command called "Knife on Points", which works much like FW's Knife tool. With the ungrouped rectangle still selected, click this command. The result will be four straight lines, and you can select and delete the lines you want to remove.


    You may also notice a slight blurring of the stroke rendering after using this command. Choosing Modify > Snap to Pixel should clean this up.
