Split paths

With the Scissors tool Cc294655.2b0720d6-7f51-4469-a9c9-59d785cf7afc(en-us,Expression.10).png, you can split an open path into two separate paths, or split a closed path to make it an open path.

Splitting a path

To split a path

  1. In the Toolbox, select the Scissors tool, or press C.

  2. Click anywhere on the path where you want a split.

B-spline paths are automatically converted to Bezier paths when you split them.

You can also split a path by selecting one or more anchor points along the path and pressing DELETE. This removes the nodes and their adjacent segments.
