You can add points to and remove points from the border of an irregular wrap polygon.

To add a point, hold down the CTRL key, point to the place on the line where you want to add the point, and click the mouse button.

To delete a point, hold down the SHIFT and CTRL keys, point to the point you want to remove, and click the mouse button.

With Publisher 98 you only have to hold down the CTRL key to add or remove points.


You can also add points if you hold down both the SHIFT and CTRL keys. If you point to an area on the line where a point does not already exist, the pointer arrow becomes an "add icon." If you point to an existing point, the pointer arrow becomes a "delete" icon.

It may be confusing that you can both add and delete points while using the same key combination. Draw, the model for this functionality, behaves differently.

Being able to either add or delete points with the same key combination is by design.
