More advanced 'Add Anchor Points' function
'Add Anchor Points' is quite archaic at the moment. My requests:
1 Apply it to selected parts of paths, in stead of the complete path.
2 Add a dialog to set the number of subdivisions
3 Add a keyboard shortcut
Totally agree. I have made an illustration of how it could work. It would a little bit similar to the blend tool.
Today, the "Add Anchor Points" function only gives us the option to add one new anchor point between two already existing ones, which is not so very useful in some cases. For example, if you would like to make a circular process bar, you cant get 100 paths by using the existing tool.
The new function would also potentially remove the already existing anchor points and replace these with a curve between two new anchor points.
However, I do think it will be necessary to have an option that the user should be able to keep anchor points with a sharp angle since the shape of the object will change otherwise.
