How do I get rid of this pole without creating an n-gon or just moving it somewhere else?
Oops, my solutions created new poles.
You can’t, you can’t diverge edge flow like this without a 5-pole
That’s from Topology Guides’ 20180207 Moving and Manipulating Edge Poles (near the end, the whole thing’s a pretty good read on the subject).
Yeah, you can move a 5-pole, but you can’t remove it
Ooops, I misread “or just moving it somewhere else?” as how to move it somewhere else, not how to avoid moving it and just get rid of it. Sorry Angelyn, can’t be done, details in the post I linked to above.
