How to delete variable width points?

Mar 1, 2013 12:01 PM

I've read a couple of methods for deleting variable-width tool points on a path (NOT path points or paths.)


None of them work for me; is there some trick to doing it?


I have read: A) Hover over the unwanted point (with var. width tool) and hit Delete and B)Select unwanted point with var width tool and hit delete.


Both moves result in the entire path being deleted.


thank you for any insight.

    Yes that is how it works. Cclick to select after your icon changes (pointere with a  tilde ~)and delete. If you have only one variable width point, than it may have the appearance of the entire line getting deleted, try aon a path with 2 variable width point until you get the hang of this.

    Would be easier if the icon chnaged to a minus sign as with the pen tool. Glad you got this solved.

    You can also double-click a width point with the Width Tool and choose delete from the pop up dialog.
