adding a point along a path

hello,

How can I add a point not at the end of a path, but somewhere along the path ?

Option-click on the path with the scissors tool. Instead of breaking the path at that point you’ll just insert a new point.

Hello,

I don’t understand whot is the meaning of the combination : option-
click-path editing selector (on a path, not into a point) : I get
ghost points out of the path !

Perhaps I don’t understand your question.

Select the scissors (ciseaux) tool, hold down the option key on the keyboard (also called the alt key), and click on the path where you want the new point.

Hi Nick !

What you say I had understood but my question was else : I try to
show what happens :

that is a path : –––––––––––––
that is a point : o
here is the place where I click with the path edit arrow + option
key : x
here are the ghost points that I get : O

here my demo :

before :

  o––––––––––––––––––––o

after :

O O
o–––––––x––––––––––––o

with more complex pathes I get sometimes but not always more ghost
points ; with previous selected points I get “selected” ghost points
(full, not hollow) ; I give you a screencopy to show you what I mean
but I don’t know if you can receivge it here :

I hadn’t found that tip. Points are usually added to paths with the pen tool. Could you make it more intuitive and/or add a tool tip somewhere?

The Freeway pen tool is driving me crazy. Sometimes adding a point can turn the colors inverted and sometimes anchor points apear without connections to to the object drawn. And when you add a curve point it doesn’t stay on the line and its anchour points is not aligned with the figure. Please Softpress do something about this feature. Take a look at Illustrator or Photshop.
