 In uMake, when you create a closed shape,
 the end points of all the curves automatically
 0:00:05.100,0:00:06.490
 form a connection.
 0:00:06.490,0:00:11.160
 By default, if you select one of the edge
 curves, and then move the curve the closed
 0:00:11.160,0:00:16.530
 shape will change, and the connected curves
 will adjust to the movement of the curve.
 0:00:16.530,0:00:20.010
 There may be times however where you will
 need to disconnect one of the edge curves
 0:00:20.010,0:00:23.160
 and move it without changing the rest of the
 shape.
 0:00:23.160,0:00:26.820
 To do this, select the curve you want to move.
 0:00:26.820,0:00:31.210
 Then tap on the icon with the scissors on
 the bounding box.
 0:00:31.210,0:00:35.290
 When this is highlighted, any curve that is
 connected to other curves will disconnect
 0:00:35.290,0:00:39.640
 and move freely without changing the shape
 of other curves.
 0:00:39.640,0:00:44.330
 When you no longer need the disconnect function
 enabled, simply tap it one more time to return
 0:00:44.330,0:00:46.420
 to the default setting.
 0:00:46.420,0:00:51.030
 Try creating a closed shape, and disconnecting
 one side from it using the disconnect function.
