Is it possible to add points to a 2 point poly chain? I made some hair guides but I have too few points in them. It would be so nice to be able to do this instead of going all the back to the beginning and make brand new hairguides. The knife tool doesn't work on these.

Thanks for your help.

Well, it works here... I just checked. :)

What version of LW are you using, drfoley?

EDIT: Make sure you don't use it in the perspective view, because it behaves little funky because of...well... the perspective... :) (looks like the point is appearing in the wrong place).

Or put another way. Knife tool works fine here for adding points drfoley are you sure it doesn't work for you?

You can also select polys and use the Add Points tool(Multiply/Subdivide/Add Points).
