Problems Creating an Opening in Curve

Sorry, but I can’t find this anywhere. I’ve used a "CurveCircle’ for the railings radius and a Curve for the railings shape. I need to create an hole or opening in my curve where the highlighted vertex is but everything I’ve tried has not worked.

I’ve tried using (X Key > Delete Segment) and (X Key > Delete Selected) and it deletes the vertice but the railing still has no opening. What am I doing wrong?

A curve cannot have a gap in it. Either create multiple curves for the different segments or convert to a mesh.

OK, Thanks Richard.
