Chapter 9. PATH OPERATIONS > Setting Path Direction

Setting Path Direction

As you create paths, the path direction comes from the order that you create the anchor points. The first point you create is considered the start of the path and the last point the end. Even closed paths such as the rectangles and ellipses that FreeHand creates have a direction. Ordinarily it doesn’t make too much difference what direction is applied to a path. However, there are sometimes when the path direction does matter.

To change the direction of a path:

1.
Select the path you want to change.

2.
Choose Modify > Alter Path > Reverse Direction.

or

Choose Xtras > Cleanup > Reverse Direction.
