    Ok, here we go again. as per the posts from "lalawson" Apr/14/04 about quilting designs:
    No one seemed to answer the main question. (Dave's reply hit the nail on the head) How do you increase the number of allowable points? I too get the message "maximum number of points already exist" when trying to join lines. Is it an AS config file modification or registry hack? Or is it something I set from within AS with some obscure menu I'm missing? The reason I need to do this is because these drawings are ported to a rudimentary cnc program and the drawing has to be one continuous polyline with high point count to ensure smooth curves on output.

    The number of points cannot be increased.
    The situation occurs when you attempt to 'Trim Join' 2 polylines together.
    You can explode your polylines into the segments that make them up, and if
    you are trying to connect the two segments between two polylines, just grab
    the veritce of one of the two segments coming together, and snap it to the
    other, and you're done.

    When you draw a polyline, you have many little styraight lines, and they are
    already connected, therefore, you only should have to be concerned with the
    segements which will join one polyline to another.

    It is only when you 'trim join' that the 2000 point limit will prevent you
    from succeeding. I too am involved with automated quilting machines and
    patterns. We only use "trim join" for testing. We must then "explode" the
    pattern before it can be used. But then, we also discourage the use of
    polylines and work with the 3 point arc instead.
