I am making an oval cribbage board ,have ti all laid out.
Want to test some of the tool paths before cutting whole project.
So I copied it to a new file put a rectangle around it and deleted everything I did not want.
So I was left with partial arcs that have closed ends.
So I would like some help on making the ends not linked together at the ends.

The techniques you need are in the video you need to apply them to your situation.

There are several ways of doing it with node editing, you can cut on the nodes on each end or delete the span itself.

On the drawing tab under Edit Objects click the second icon that is Node Editing Mode

Then click on one of you vectors and it will show little squares where each node is.
Right-click over one of the vectors that you want to delete and select Delete Span
