Subject: Drawing a closed spline

You can draw a closed spline, which is a spline for which the start point and endpoint are the same. Because the spline is closed, you specify only one tangent.

To draw a closed spline

   1   Do one of the following to choose Spline ():

   On the ribbon, choose Draw > Spline.

   On the menu, choose Draw > Spline.

   On the Draw toolbar, click the Spline tool.

   Type spline and then press Enter.

   2   Specify the first point of the spline.

   3   Specify the second point of the spline.

   4   Specify as many more points as you want.

   5   When you have finished, in the prompt box, choose Close.

   6   To complete the command, specify the tangent point.
