move polyline node / vertex

jack_sprat
Hi,

I'm looking for help with moving a node within a polyline entity.

This edit is (partly) described in How to change position of the vertex of polylin [sic], but the actual tool selected to move the node is not specified (it's not 'Move/Copy' as that moves the entire entity)

Here is dxli's procedure:
1, draw a circle of by (point, radius) at new position .... the radius is not important here, using 1 or 5 doesn't matter;
2, select the line;
3, enable snap to center only, disable other snap options;
*** what tool needs to be active here? ***
4, click and hold on the point you want to move, which is shown with color now ... drag it to the new position by snap point ..., release mouse;
...

as far as I can see, without there being an active tool, step 4 does not work (for me, at least)

can anybody help?

best wishes - JS

Hmmm....

so I just tried it again (for about the 8th time)... and it worked (slightly differently from description).

1. make sure no tool is selected (pressing ESC seems to work, or click << to return to default toolbox)
2. select the polyline entity
3. nodes are coloured blue (for me) - click on the one you want to move, drag it a bit (to see if it moves) and release
4. (the node should follow the mouse pointer) click on the new position
5. edit further nodes, or CTRL-K to deselect entity
