I like the 'autosmooth' feature on curves (lines) in Inkscape.

Sometimes I want to smooth out a complete path.

I choose 'edit paths by nodes', click on the node I want to smooth, and then use the 'autosmooth' button. But I have to repeat this for every node in the path.

I know I can select multiple nodes by shift+clicking them all, but that becomes tedious as well.

Is there a way to select all the nodes of a path at once?

With the path selected by the node tool, simply typing Ctrl+A will select all nodes.

  • Choose the node tool.
  • Click at the path, so that all nodes get lightly marked
  • pull a rectangle around all the nodes you like to smooth/round
  • select the action
  • So obvious once you know it ;-)
