Convert Erase Path (Erase All or Erase None)

The two tools Convert to Erase ALL Existing Paths and Convert to Erase NO Existing Paths both operate on an Erase Path (a path where at least one of the paint layers is erasing) and alter its erasing behavior. If the option Erasure Honors Creation Time is turned on, an Erase Path can only cut through those paths that are both below it (see Z Levels) and were created before the erase path was created.

Delete Path

The Delete tool deletes a path when you touch one of its Snapping Points. This is not the same as erasing. The path, the entire path, simply disappears. Don’t think of this as an eraser in other drawing apps that lets you scrub out a piece of the image. See also the Delete Collection tool which allows you to delete several paths at once. If you do want to erase, see Erasing. [Read More]

Delete Path Collection

The Delete Collection tool is used to delete a group of paths simultaneously or to delete a hard to select bottom or top path in a selected area. You select a group using either a rectangular or a circular enclosing area. The only other “construction” (destruction?) option is the type of paths to delete.

Erase with Path In Place

The Erase with Path In Place tool lets you turn any path into an erase path, that is, a path which cuts through all existing paths below it. Once the path has been converted to an erase path, you can actually move it or transform it like any other path. Think of it as being able to move a hole. Make sure the Snap to Erasures option is turned ON in the Header Options Buttons and simply use the a Move move tool or any other transformation tool. [Read More]
