I want to create a node on the intersection of two curves (eg bezier curves). Of course I can zoom in and try to be as near as possible, but it won't be exactly. Is it possible to exactly find the intersection?
alt+z is snap to objects. Double click an area as close to the intersection as possible with your node tool. Then drag it until it says intersection then let go.
Object are snapping to the intersection. But I do not know how to create a node on the curve, at that point where it intersects with another curve. Of course I can create a node near that intersection and move it to the intersection, but it will alter the shape of the original curve.
I am sorry, maybe I did not describe the problem correctly. Here's how it was meant: create a bezier line 1, then creat a bezier line 2 that intersects line 1. Now I want to place a node on line 1, exactly at the intersection point, without changing the shape of line 1.
Hello TMPE; The line you are trying to put the node on should be moved to the front.
Doesn't make any difference if it is in front or in the background. The node does not snap to the intersection.
Select one of the curves, Shift click the other, Arrange> Shaping >Trim. This will create a node on the second curve at the overlap point.
combine both curves - NO
Thank you everyone for your help! The solution by Evan53 works. A node is created at the intersection point. Unfortunately after trimming the line 1 has overlapping curve segments after trimming (identical elements), but the redundant curve segments can be deleted and afterwareds there is a "simple" line with a new node at the intersection.
