Splitting lines

Splitting lines is similar to merging points. Sometimes you try to hit a line and when enlarging the drawing, you notice that you missed it. CrysMAS checks for each selected line, whether a point is closer than the tolerance and moves this point to the line by normal projection. The line will then be split, i.e. you can select both parts separately. If the point is an end point of a line, the closest end points of both lines will be connected to each other.

  1. Select the line which shall be split by the point.

  2. Select Edit > Split lines.

The point is moved to the line. The end point of a line is connected to the closest end point of the selected line.


Merging only happens, if the points to be merged with lines are within the tolerance. Increase the tolerance stepwise, if necessary.
