Path Commands

Posted September 25, 2004 by senocular

Version: Fireworks MX

A collection of basic path commands. These include the following operations for selected paths:

  • Open: Opens all selected paths
  • Invert: Inverts selected paths. Inverting a path is similar to inverting a marquee selection. In a path's case, a new path contour is created around the current path that's the size of the document effectively inverting the path
  • Close: Closes all selected paths
  • Round Points Positions: Rounds all the positions of the points on the path to the nearest whole number
  • Round Points to Half: Rounds all the positions of the points on the path to the nearest .5 value
  • Toggle Open or Closed: Opens all selected closed paths and closes all selected open paths
  • Shift Points: Changes the location of the first point to be the next point in the path (used with open paths)
  • Straighten: Removes any curves from selected paths
  • Smooth: Smooths selected paths to not have any straight corners

Each are accessible from the Commands > Paths menu
