Add Anchor Points evenly spaced between existing anchors (similar to Illustrator)
I posted this on the Adobe forums but realized this is the proper place to post.
I would like to see a tool similar to the "Add Anchor Points" tool in Illustrator, but potentially with a few more features.
Along with the normal "Add Anchor Points" feature, It would be really nice to be able to select 2 anchor points, use "Add Anchor Points" and choose how many anchor points to add between the two selected points, equally spaced out. This could also work with selecting more than 2 anchor points, or an entire shape.
Hi @joan_lafferty, Unfortunately, that's not how 'Add Anchor Points' in Illustrator works. The Add Anchor Points tool adds anchor spaced equally between two existing anchor points.
If there's a way to do this without an additional tool, I'm all for that. For example, the cursor could snap to the middle of a path when it is getting close to equal spacing between points.
I'm also suggesting the ability to add more than 1 anchor point equally spaced between two anchor points. For instance, if I have a 100 pixel long horizontal line, I could add 3 anchor points, each being 25px apart from one another.

The functionality to add anchor points is integrated into the pen tool rather than having a separate tool. With any shape selected, double click to enter path editing mode. Clicking on any part of a path will add an additional anchor point.
