Adding a Path
The Path object is used for walkways, landscape paths,
sidewalks, and so forth. Paths can be straight or curved, and will automatically
conform to uneven terrain. Paths can be used in conjunction with Region objects,
allowing you to mix and match as desired.
To add a path:
1. Click Add
2. Change the Width
property to the desired width.
3. Draw the path's
centerline by clicking to add points. Press Backspace to remove the last
point. Press Esc to cancel.
4. Right-click at the
last point when finished.
Once you add the
path, you have full control over its shape. You can add points, delete points,
and modify the shape as needed for your landscape design.
The Path object was
