Advanced Point Editing
Advanced point editing allows you to select individual points within a measurement the perform operations on the selected points.
Editing within a Measurement
You can select individual points within a measurement in the following ways:
- Click on a point to select it (and de-select all others)
- Shift/Click on a point to add it to the selected points or de-select it if it was already selected.
- Drag a rectangle around a group of points to select them all (and de-select all others)
- Shift/Drag a rectangle around a group of points to add the points to the selected points.
Once you have selected the desired points, you can act on them:
- Click down on selected point(s), drag them to a new location and release them to move them.
- Ctrl/Click on selected point(s) and drag them to add a new set of points.
- Press the Delete key to delete the selected points.
- Right-click and select "Make the N points Counted."
- Right-click and select "Make the N points UNCounted".
- Right-click and select "Split the N select points into a new Disconnected Group".
- Right-click and select "Split the N selected points into a new Measurement". ALL the selected points will be removed from the current measurement and added to a new measurement.
- Right-click and select "Split the selected segment into a new Measurement". This option is only available when you have selected a contiguous series of points in a single group. All the selected points will be added to a new measurement. All the selected points except the first and the last will be removed from the current measurement. Those first and last points will then be disconnected. Effectively this moves the selected line segment to a new measurement.
- Right-click and select "Merge the N groups containing the selected points into a single group".
Merging Multiple Measurements
In multi-select mode, you can select multiple measurements, right-click and select "Merge N selected measurements into one".
Changing Line Curvature

During trace editing you can choose to curve the lines between points. If the lines are curved, a box will be displayed at the center of each line. You can click-down on this box and drag the line to the desired curvature.
