It is also possible to access this function through the Bundle Segment Definition dialog box.
Open a document containing a branch with several branch points.
  1. Click Remove Branch Point .
    You are prompted to select a bundle segment.

  3. Click OK to validate.
    The branch point is removed and the two sub-segments on both sides of the removed branch point are merged.

Note that when you select a bundle segment to remove a branch point, the closest one is highlighted and proposed for deletion. When you validate the merged bundle segments keep the properties of the bundle segment originally selected.
