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

Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to remove an existing vertex from a line, or polyline object, in the current document.


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


After launching the command, you will be prompted to select the vertex you wish to delete. Simply position the cursor over the vertex you wish to remove, and click. The vertex will be removed and the polyline will be redrawn accordingly.

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


  1. A line, by definition, must have at least two vertices (i.e. its end points) and therefore you cannot delete a vertex from a line that has only two vertices.
  2. If you click on a segment of the polyline, the oldest-placed vertex for that segment will be the one deleted.
