    Default How to separate, remove these inner line shapes?

    Hello all,

    I'm trying to create a triangle line shape with rounded corners to use as easy cutting shape for keychain designs, but I can't figure out how to separate and remove the inner parts (red) from the whole. How to do this?

    Sample result but hand-drawn cutting shape, the corners are not perfectly round and too small.

    I can't remember if version 5 has curvature adjustment for quickshapes - why I was checking first....

    I appreciate why you asked. I just jumped ahead. v5 does have curved corners for QuickShapes (just checked).

    Just looking at your image I would say when putting the circle in place you need to cut it so the red precisely lines up with rhe black lines, I would suggest making both the same lline weight such as 4pt and increase the zoom so you can get a clear view of how both line up then select both and slice(Ctrl 4) you can always change the lpne weight.

    OK I did a tutorial as how i did it. Maybre someone else here knows a better way.Click image for larger version.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    Rarely use the Content Catalogue but Triangle 2 would seem ideal for this.

    What's content catalogue? Sounds like something my version does not have.
