In KiCad's layout tool, we can add a vertex to the outline of a "filled zone" with the "Insert" key. Sometimes I put in too many, change my mind etc, and they get annoying. How to remove them?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Of course, you could also delete the entire zone and re-draw it with fewer vertices, but I think deleting the vertex from the context menu is easier! \$\endgroup\$ – Hearth Jan 12 at 16:29
  • \$\begingroup\$ well yeah. I've been using it for a while actually, completely overlooked it \$\endgroup\$ – Pete W Jan 12 at 16:32

As @Hearth pointed out, this is actually trivial. Right-clicking directly on the vertex (vs right-clicking on the outline but not the vertex) adds the "Remove Corner" item to the right-click menu.
