How to remove part of the leg line between two controls
Previous Topic  Next Topic 

Occasionally, you want the course leg line between two controls to be broken, so as to avoid covering details on the map.

  1. Select the course leg by clicking the mouse on the line.  The leg line will appear as selected in red color, and the end points will appear as small black rectangles.
  2. Cut a segment of the line by using the Cut Segment button on the Course Edit Tools Toolbar, then clicking on the course leg where you want the line to be cut.
  3. A segment of about 5 mm. will be "cut" out of the course leg line. 
  4. Black rectangles will appear at the ends of the segment.  The length of the segment can be adjusted by dragging either rectangle.


Alternatively, you can add corner points to the course leg line by using the Insert Point button , and then toggle off the segment between the two corner points by using the Toggle Segment button .


The appearance of a course leg can either be

    1. common for all courses, or
    2. specific to a given course

In the former case, Condes will remember that you want the leg to bend between the leg's two endpoint controls.  Condes will draw that course leg the same way for all courses that use the leg.

If you want the leg to be specific to a given course (the latter case), you can double click on the leg line, and in the dialog box that pops up, you can choose that the leg should be specific to the selected course.   This can be useful, for example if a leg goes straight through a control later on this particular course and therefore needs to be cut or bent only on this course.
