I think I have found the Adobe Illustrator version of this question, at: how continue a path from one point by using pen tools in illustrator?
Another site: suggests subpaths, but this doesn't seem to work because you have to stop, and go back, and smooth out that shared node.
But in Inkscape, can you "pick up" from where you left off with the Bezier / Pen Tool, to continue drawing a curved path? (So that the continued path shares the same cusp / smooth / symmetric nodes)?
I imagine this issue doesn't really matter with line / corner nodes.
A Very Over-Simplified Use Case:
- Guru Artist is making a vertically snaking "S" path, (to make a snake!).
- To begin,
Click+Drag, then release to create a collinear segment.
Click+Dragto create another.
- And again, and again ...
- Accidentally hit
Right+Click- because of IRL Aggro from swooping dragon flying over house.
- Come back to computer, and want to continue creating this curve, for many more steps.
I am basically looking for the capability to "pick-up" the last node, or even delete the last segment, and continue on, maintaining all of the handles.
Is there a way to do this in InkScape?
