Segment to Line

The Segment To Line action will convert either a quadratic or a cubic curve segment into a straight line segment. Essentially, it discards the control points of the curve.

In the provided example, a Quadratic Curve Segment is changed to a Line Segment. Follow the steps below:

Step 1: Click on the desired segment to select it and then Right Click (Control-Click) to open the contextual menu.

Step 2: Select the Path Submenu and then choose Segment to Line.

Step 3: The control point (green) of the Quadratic Curve Segment is removed and the segment is changed to a Line Segment to create a rectangle, as shown below.

The following screenshots show the resulting line when the Segment to Line action is performed on a Cubic Curve Segment.

Note: Refer to the Handles Reference section of this documentation to learn more about each handle.
