Change to Polyline Space.PNGThis function is available in OCAD 11 Professional.This function is available in OCAD 11 Orienteering Standard.

You can find this function in the Object menu or by clicking the Icon ChangeToPolyline.png Change to Polyline button in the Edit Functions Toolbar. This function is available when a line, area or line text object is selected.

Choose this function to change a line into a polyline. A polyline is an angular line, this means all Bezier vertices are replaced with regular vertices.

Change to Bezier Curve Space.PNGThis function is available in OCAD 11 Professional.This function is available in OCAD 11 Orienteering Standard.This function is available in OCAD 11 Starter.

You can find this function in the Object menu or by clicking the Icon ChangeToBezierCurve.PNG Change to Bezier Curve button in the Edit Functions Toolbar. This function is available when a line, area or line text object is selected.

Choose this command to convert the selected polylines to Bezier curves. The quality of the Bezier curve depends on the number of vertices of the original polylines. If the polyline has only a few vertices the distance from the Bezier curve to the original polyline between the vertices can be much bigger than the tolerance value.

If a hole inside an area object is selected, only the border of the hole is converted.
