Hello Martin and JK
Thank you for the hints.
I am rewriting the Draw guide for LO3.5 and using version LO3.4 as a base. The instructions given in version 3.4 are very poor and difficult to understand.
At first I could not get the Eliminate Points to work, but have now succeeded in getting it to work. In my opinion this is an overly complicated way of deleting a point.
Once a curve has been converted to a line with more than one point on the line, you select the point you want to remove and then use the Delete Point tool, which is also on the Edit Points toolbar. The selected point is deleted and a straight line is created between the two points either side of the deleted point. This is a far simpler method of deleting or eliminating a point and produces exactly the same result.
I think that we should remove the Eliminate Points tool from the Edit Points toolbar as it is unnecessary. Now I need to know who to contact within the Document Foundation to make this suggestion.
