Straighten a curved line?

I know there is a quick way to add handles to a segment. Is there a quick way to do the reverse? For example, if I have a segment that is nearly straight and I want straighten it entirely by removing the handles? My current solution is slow. I break the path at the 2 nodes, delete the segment, and draw a straight one. I’m guessing there is an easier/ faster way.

Rainer (@mekkablue) has a script for that. You’re looking for Insert BCPs into straight and Retract in his Scripts repo.

Simply select one of the handles between the two nodes of the nearly straight segment. Then, press the delete key to remove it. It should be the other handle in between the two nodes creating a straight segment.
