Represents the geometry and the geometry-editing properties of the nodes in a user-defined freeform. Nodes include the vertices between the segments of the freeform and the control points for curved segments. The ShapeNode object is a member of the ShapeNodes collection. The ShapeNodes collection contains all the nodes in a freeform.

Use Nodes(index), where index is the node index number, to return a single ShapeNode object. If node one in shape three on the active document is a corner point, the following example makes it a smooth point. For this example to work, shape one must be a freeform.

Sub ChangeNodeType() 
 With ActiveDocument.Pages(1).Shapes(1) 
 If .Nodes(1).EditingType = msoEditingCorner Then 
 .Nodes.SetEditingType Index:=1, EditingType:=msoEditingSmooth 
 End If 
 End With 
End Sub
