Curves and degree behaviour with join command

Hi All,

I’d like to know what is the logic behind this behaviour.

If you explode all the segments the degree changes again to the original.

Thanks,
Joaquín

Hi Joaquin - a polycurve currently takes on the degree of the highest degree curve segment. There has been talk of making this different… but that is how it is now.

Thanks for the quick reply Pascal.
At least for me this is not ideal.

Hi Joaquin - is this because you want lines to stay ‘rigid’ within a polycurve, so you can move the ends?

Exactly, I have to explode the policurves before editing points to prevent obtaining a curve I don’t want.
