What does "Open Path" do under "Edit Shape"?


#1
  1. I expected it to break two objects that I flattened into a single stroke (or path, or outline, whatever Lunacy calls them.) It doesn’t seem to do that.

  2. Is there a way to break or open a path?

Thanks!
Jill

Hi Jill, I think this video-tutorial will help you out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1Yz-WmOjow&t=300s, but feel free to let us know if you have any questions left!

Sorry, I don’t think I asked the question very clearly. First, can Lunacy create single line drawings vs. shapes, in other words, just the outline of a shape? Second, how might I change a circle into a “C”? Thanks for the help! And thanks for the referral to the video. A resource I hadn’t known about!

Jill, we are very sorry for the late reply.

Here is how you can do an outline of a shape:
-remove fill from a shape
-add a stroke
You can find all the needed options on the right panel when a shape is created:

And here is how you can change a circle into a C letter:
-add an ellipse shape
-add a stroke, remove a fill
-go to Edit shape -> Open path through this option:

-add more nodes if needed
-click on “Finish” when done

We hope it helps, but if not, please let us know about it and we will do our best to change that!
