Hi Zweb,

Is there a way to extend a curve as a straight line instead of a curve in FZ 7?
I'm asking this because in FZ 6 a straight line was the default extension of curves and that is very useful for many modeling task I need to do.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Carlos

Hi Carlos,

Does the Extend Tool from the Line Editing tool row do what you want?

Hi Tech,

Thank you for the information. This tool will do the trick.
But is there a way to create that extension without a merge like in FZ6?

Hi Carlos,

Yes, just check the Make New Object option! :-)
