With this tool you can add nodes to existing polylines. Adding a new node to a polyline means to split up one segment into two segments. The two new segments are both straight, even if one of original segments was an arc segment.


  1. Specify the segment of the polyline in which you want to add the new node.
  2. Specify the position of the new node with your mouse or by entering a coordinate.
