The following pre-packaged resource, derived from this base command, is available:

Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to move an existing vertex of a polyline object, in the current document.


This command is accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by choosing the Edit » Vertex » Move command from the main menus.


After launching the command, you will be prompted to select a vertex to move. Simply position the cursor over the required vertex and click. You will now be prompted to select a new location for the vertex. Move the cursor - a guiding line will appear as you do so - to the required location and click. The polyline shape will be modified accordingly.

Continue moving further vertices, or right-click, or press Esc, to exit.


  1. If you click on a segment of the polyline, the nearest vertex along that segment will be selected for moving and, although the whole polyline appears selected, the vertex to be moved will have a guideline attached to it.
  2. The vertices of arcs may not be moved.
