Can contour continuation be direction/index agnostic?



  • Sometimes when there's an open contour, I'll use the pen tool to continue the contour by clicking on an open point. Sometimes I want to continue from the start point of the contour. But right now, it seems you have to continue from the last point. Can it be made possible to start from either open point?

    TIA,

    P.S. I think a similar things exists for contour closure. Sometimes I find myself having to select two open points, close the contour, and then delete one of the points.



  • @gferreira @frederik Just want to bump this to get your thoughts. Thanks!



  • This would be much appreciated.



  • Just adding more support to the report here. In this case, contour not closing when drawing to the start point.

    Continue drawing at the start point of an open contour will be implemented in the next (beta) release.

    One side note is that the contour direction will change when selecting the start point with the drawing tool.

    @ryan in that last example press alt while clicking: this will convert the curve (there is a trailing off curve) to a line segment and properly closes the contour.



  • Awesome thanks @frederik!

    And will check that out, thanks.
