remove excess verts

Say you have a straight line that is composed of 4 verts. is there a way to delete the 2 verts in the middle of the line and just have 2 verts on the ends? i guess you could call it “unsubdividing” Any idea? Thanks.

Select the two middle verts and then one of the end ones and Alt-m and select merge to last.

If it is for a larger mesh then Script>mesh>Poly Reducer can be useful.

you can merge them- select them in a row and merge at last.

is poly reducer bundled with blender / do you need python installed to run it?

give it a try :wink:

Yes it’s bundled, you shouldn’t need python.
For small stuff, merging the verts manually is way better.
