I have a contour object, and I would like to delete a part of it (a line).
So I converted the object to a path, selected the Edit paths by nodes tool and deleted the unwanted nodes, now I have the contour but I'm still left with a bezier connecting the next two nodes.
I tried to delete that connection, but when I select it and delete it, Inkscape does not delete the line, but the nodes at both ends, which I didn't want.
How do I delete the line but keep the open contour? (So far it is a closed contour).
Background: this object is a county, it is a map in general. I would like to keep all data inside the object except the lines which shows the borders of the county.
