Was this feature removed from the latest update?

Before, if you select delete anchor point tool (-) and click on an anchor point while holding shift, it would delete the anchor point but preserve the curve.

But now, holding shif or not, removes the anchor point without preserving the curve.

 

Why would you remove such a beatiful feature?

If you don't understand what I mean, here's a video showing this feature, it is shown starting at 4:00, the link below should directly take you there:

Thanks.

 

P.S. Please don't suggest to use simplify. Simplify feature is completely unpredcitable and no way of controlling which anchor points need to be deleted.

P.P.S. Will use the older version for now, but please let me know if this is just a bug or if you decided to get rid of this feature beacuse it was too good.

In this tutorial, you will learn tips and tricks to delete anchor points in style, using both the simplify path and delete anchor point tools. I also explain...

Hi there,

 

Thank you for your time and patience. We have tried to address this issue in our latest build of 24.1.2. If you are not already on v 24.1.2, then we recommend you to update to latest version and let us know how it goes.

It's a bug. I think they already wrote on uservoice that they are working on it.
