PATHS TOOL; Is it possible to split a path ?
Put differently: Is it possible to severe the connection between two nodes ?

[solved]RE: PATHS TOOL; Is it possible to split a path ?
Thanks for reply. I marked this as [solved] as my question was answered.

Having watched a video and googled some more ... I'm left with the impression that 'components' of a path can only be connected at the end-nodes, not in a middle node. Is that correct ?

Why would anyone want to, one can ask ?
I started making a 3D cube like thing where each corner node obviously will connect to three other nodes. That isn't possible, which is fine as long as I know this and don't keep googling feeling like a moron for not getting it Smile


For other newbies: 'components' are strings of nodes and 'segments' belonging to the same path but unconnected to each other. Ugly illustration, two components:

*--*--*

*
|
|
*
The middle node of the first component cannot be connected.

RE: PATHS TOOL; Is it possible to split a path ?
Something I've been looking for in vain is a display of XY coordinates for precise keyboard positioning. After selecting / adding a node it can be moved with the arrow keys. If there is an coordinate display updated by the keyboard I haven't found it.

The arrow keys is more precise. I'd much prefer fine tuning via the keyboard.

For some other tools like 'rectangle select' there is an keyboard updated coordinate display (in Toolbox). I wish this existed for all tools. PATHS TOOL isn't the only tool where I missed this.
